For more information about the programs, click on the links below.
The Lehman Study Abroad Office is committed to promoting international academic experiences. Our office oversees all Lehman faculty-led, study abroad, and exchange programs. These programs allow our students to further explore their academic interests at an international level, often times, accompanied by our faculty. Currently, Lehman sponsors five international programs.
During the summer, Lehman sponsors a history, archeology, and geology faculty-led program on the Island of Crete in Greece and an Irish language program in Connemara, Ireland. This winter, Lehman will be sponsoring two faculty-led programs, one taught by Professor McElligott in the English department in London, England and the second taught by Professor Mibenge in the Political Science department in Santiago, Chile.
In addition to our study abroad and faculty-led programs, Lehman also sponsors a semester/year long exchange program with Sungshin Women's University in Seoul, Korea. Sungshin offers a great selection of courses that are taught in English and cover various disciplines. Participants are also encouraged to take Korean language and culture courses.

Description: Connemara, County Galway, is a place of wild beauty. On the west coast of Ireland, north of the Aran Islands, lies the village of An Cheathrú Rua (Carraroe). The village is an important rural center in the Connemara Irish-speaking region. Buffered on all sides by other Irish-speaking areas, mountains, and water, An Cheathrú Rua exists in a region where the Irish language continues to be the community language spoken in homes and in shops. An Cheathrú Rua has several beaches that serve the village including a coral beach know as "Trá an Dóilín." The National University of Ireland, founded in 1845, serves over 15,000 students. Its "Acadamh na hOllscolaíochta Gaeilge" (Irish Language University Academy) serves native Irish speakers and students of Irish at satellite campuses in different Irish-language villages. The CUNY Irish language classes will be held at the An Cheathrú Rua facility which is called "Áras Mháirtín Uí Chadhain"(The Máirtín Ó Cadhain Building). Students live with local Irish speaking families and receive their meals from the families as well. In addition to Irish language classes, students will also be able to participate in social activities and cultural lectures. For more information about the program, click here.
