If you're a pre-med or life sciences major who needs physics credit, why not enjoy a culturally immersive experience and earn a year’s worth of credit over a summer abroad? These select study abroad programs can help you meet a few goals in just 8 short weeks.
As a first-generation college student, I knew nothing about studying abroad. In Brazil, I quickly learned I would need to adjust differently than some of my peers. Many other first-gen students may find themselves in the same shoes.
As an undergrad, I spent three semesters and two summers away from California. I hope my story encourages you to study abroad not just once, but many times.
