The Global Perspectives program offers a tremendous opportunity for students at Lee to gain a cross-cultural experience. Lee University ranks as a top institution nationwide in terms of the percent of undergraduates receiving credit for studying abroad, according to the Open Door report.

The cross-cultural experience requirement is a core requirement for all students and includes a minimum of two Global Perspectives credit hours: the Global Perspectives Seminar and the Cross-Cultural Experience.

The Global Perspectives Office serves students by providing options for every student to fulfill the cross-cultural experience requirement, from affordable domestic opportunities to short-term faculty-led trips to a semester-long program. Lee University students come to see this opportunity not just as a requirement but as a life-changing experience. We challenge them to immerse themselves in another culture, broaden their understandings of the world, and consequently change their perspectives of themselves and others.
