Solving the world’s environmental problems like pollution, climate change, and dwindling natural resources takes a curious mind and a creative scientific approach. Taking your environmental science studies abroad means the opportunity to learn how soils can be decontaminated from farm products in Ghana, test the effects of carbon on rainwater in a Costa Rican rainforest, or model how arctic sea ice is changing in response to a warming planet in Iceland

Standing in front of a class and teaching in Spanish for an hour was a great way to improve my language level and increase my confidence. I also gained more clarity on the roles and responsibilities of a teacher. To experience the dynamics of a classroom was a goal I was able to achieve through my internship abroad.
Study abroad was a really good learning experience. I came out of it a much more confident person. I felt more adult, more grown up. I learned a lot about myself and other cultures, languages, and people. I made a lot of friends and got to travel to some of the most beautiful places on Earth.
Ghana made me appreciate my cultural and familial values much more and widened my understanding of where my home truly is. I learned so much more from Ghana than I ever expected.
