Studying abroad has been a longstanding aspiration of mine as I love to create new experiences and branch out of my comfort zone into new environments. While I never had a specific location in mind, Rome aligns really well with both my academic pursuits and personal interests. As a Social Work major, opportunities for coursework within my field are limited which is why I added on an International Communications minor to enhance my skill set through a global perspective. Rome also offers a lot of opportunities for photography and film classes that I have integrated into my schedule to pursue my personal passions and give myself an outlet for my creativity. Overall, this program offers a unique opportunity for me to integrate academic, personal, and professional growth skills while I am immersing myself into a new country surrounded by different cultures and hopefully be able to pick up the Italian language.

Major: Social Work

Minor: International Communications
