The worldwide pandemic has required us to reimagine the LBAT experiences we offer students. Programs that advertise for 2021 will have a go/no go date and, in the case that international travel should be impossible, will offer a virtual study abroad option as a backup. Please check the program website regularly for updates/announcements on our 2021 programming.
