International experience

Learn to thrive in our diverse educational environment 

Welcome to our community of scholars from across the globe

In The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at Arizona State University, our students are just as diverse as our academic programs. You’ll join a community of scholars who come from around the world, including India, Vietnam and Zimbabwe, for a high-quality educational experience. We understand coming to a new country for college can present significant cultural differences and challenges, which is why we strive to ensure all our students have access to the resources and opportunities they need to learn to thrive in our inclusive and supportive environment.
