Program Abroad:

  • Semester Abroad (SA): Cambridge University, Pembroke College

Ask me about...

  • Attending supervisions (one-on-one meetings with your professor once a week to discuss your perspectives and ideas on your paper)

  • Being abroad in Europe for the first time

  • Writing two dissertations in one semester

My Experience Abroad:

I'd wanted to delve more deeply into my major for a while; all study-abroad students at Cambridge only took two classes so it was the perfect opportunity to become an expert in certain fields that I was particularly interested in. By the end of the semester, I had an in-depth understanding of the subjects covered in my two courses, while receiving a unique, personalized learning experience thanks to my supervisions.

Other Highlights:

  • Exploring a university and town that have been around longer than the United States has been in existence

  • Having a month and a half off in the middle of the semester to travel Europe

  • Making day-trips to London to explore the city
