International Studies Program

Welcome to Lake Land College's International Studies Program!

Lake Land College is a comprehensive community college offering a broad range of programs. Lake Land offers transfer degrees, allowing students to complete their first two years of college-level coursework at Lake Land before continuing their education at a four-year college or university. Lake Land also offers certificate programs and degrees, which allow students to directly prepare for the workplace. 

Lake Land College holds many advantages over four-year universities, including lower costs, smaller class sizes, and a greater degree of flexibility. For students in one of our many transfer programs, Lake Land provides a specialized, low cost alternative to their first two years of academic study. 

Lake Land College, located in East Central Illinois, offers students the experience of small town living but with the amenities of big city life just a short drive away. The college campus is approximately 150 miles south of Chicago, Illinois; 125 miles northeast of St. Louis, Missouri; and about 100 miles west of Indianapolis, Indiana. Two major interstate highways, I-57 and I-70, intersect in the district. AmTrak passenger rail service, Greyhound bus service, and a small airport offer more transportation possibilities.
