Global Concentration


The cohort design is at the heart of the Global Concentration and is what makes it unique. Students will be part of a dynamic, student-driven cohort for both years of the program. This will allow students to collaborate, developing their skills and delving into a variety of topics. The cohort is designed to be purposeful, reflective, interdisciplinary and collaborative.

Experiential Interaction

All members of the concentration must leave campus, be it virtually, philosophically, or physically! Students will work with a group outside the LFA community in order to not only better understand themselves, but also how to interact with others effectively and purposefully.


Engagement is a top priority of the concentration. Students will explore a variety of topics through the lenses of identity, inquiry, communication, and collaboration. Students will find ways to stay connected and strive to form action plans with a purpose.


The Capstone Celebration takes place in April of the second year of the concentration. It is the culmination of two years of dedicated work that is shared within the wider LFA community. Students will present their findings, progress, and share their personal growth in a variety of creative and thought-provoking ways!
