My Experience Abroad:

As a Philosophy, Politics, and Economics (PPE) major with a concentration in Choice and Behavior, I enrolled under the Psychology Department at UCL. I took courses with a focus primarily on behavioral sciences including Psychology of Individual Differences, Social and Business Psychology, and Applied Decision Making. I also took an elective on Political Economy, and we had interesting discussions on the state of British politics. All of these courses fit well with my academic track at Penn, and I was able to experience a more research-intensive side to psychology.

Other Highlights:

  • Husky sledding and seeing the Northern Lights in Norway

  • Being introduced to Barry's Bootcamp in London

  • Spending the best 24 hours in Portugal with consecutive red-eye flights

  • Hiking the Atlas Mountains in Morocco

  • Watching the Prince of Egypt Musical at the Dominion Theatre
