Life isn’t limited to the United States.
Your love of all things living, breathing, and growing could span the entire world! Your career will thrive if you have a better understanding of international environments, cultural practices, historical precedent, and – of course – language.
Why do LCP with your major in CALS?
You want a major that lays a strong direction for your future career, but you also want to stand out with your international perspectives.
What’s LCP all about?
- Coursework tailored to professional issues
- Internship or study abroad
- Scholarships for your international experiences
Whether you just want to keep improving your language skills or study culture or you’re convinced you want to work internationally, LCP is right for you. Our classes will use the other part of your brain that you don’t get to exercise in your primary major.
Majors + Minors
What language and culture do you want to pair with your primary major? You can do an LCP major or minor with these!
If you want to make inroads in the Russian-speaking or Chinese-speaking worlds, check out these LCP options.
First and foremost, LCP internships are about the cultural and language experiences. However, our LCP students have worked at amazing organizations such as Bosch, Daimler, and John Deere International. Where will you go? You can find out more about internships for credit here.
NOTE: In some cases, an approved credit-bearing study abroad experience can take the place of the internship. Contact us, to get the conversation started!
Meet your LCP Ambassador
My name is Morgan Kroymann, and I am currently a senior here at Iowa State studying Genetics (College of Agriculture and Life Sciences) and LCP Spanish! My LCP adventure began on my first visit to Iowa State, where I was introduced to the major by one of our awesome advisors. At the time, it was hard to believe that four years later I would be completing two distinct majors…but here I am today, on the edge of graduation, and I couldn’t be more grateful for the opportunities and advantages that the LCP program has provided me!
Now, during my last semester at Iowa State, I am completing my final course to obtain my LCP Spanish major. LCP has helped me to become a more well-rounded, empathetic, and diverse student and individual. I can’t wait to use the foundation of skills that the LCP program has given me for the rest of my life!
