Why should you take in this class? Read what past students have to say:

  • To be able to apply study abroad experiences to the professional world definitely requires practice and I’m glad I took this class to help me prepare for how to use my experiences to potentially get me a job.
  • Learning how to transfer skills from studying abroad to professional life was the most helpful. Instructor comments on my reflections helped me see things about my experiences that I couldn’t really see myself.
  • The readings and activities from the class were extremely informative and useful in order to think deeply about my abroad experience.
  • The discussions and the opportunity to hear from others what their experience was like helped me to figure out how I grew as a person as well as a global citizen.
  • This class was a fun way to continue to enjoy and share your study abroad experience even though it is over.
