Sixth-Year Pharmacy Major

Opportunities abroad can fulfill classes for your major or general education requirements, help with your desire to learn a new language, or provide the chance to do an internship! Each student has their own reasons for going abroad, but Lucas wanted to improve his Spanish language skills while working in another country’s health care system. Serving as an intern and speaking a different language allowed him to develop professionally and become more culturally competent. “Study abroad allowed me to realize how independent and comfortable I can be while living in a new area. I truly was able to understand myself better as a person.”
