Can international students apply for graduate studies?

LBC | Capital is excited to offer international students the opportunity to earn their masters degrees from their home country through our online programs. No need to uproot your life. If you have internet access, we come to you. Our instruction and coursework for all our degrees are in English, therefore an English language proficiency exam (TOEFL/IELTS/Duolingo) will be required for any non-citizen international applicant to show proof of your English language proficiency.

International students seeking to study in the United States for their doctorate or masters degrees will be limited to those programs available on-location. Please contact the Seminary & Graduate School admissions office or international@thehawkgolfinc.com for more information.
