Study Abroad and Domestic Study Away

Notes from Abroad: Susan in Malta

Susan Ryan ’18 double majored in Sociology/Anthropology and Art History, minored in Museum Studies, and studied last semester at the University of Malta.

Last semester I studied at the University of Malta, and lived in the international dormitories with a group of exceptional students from all over the world. While abroad, I got the chance to study artworks and periods that I don’t have access to in the United States, namely Renaissance and Baroque art. I also utilized my time abroad to travel, and look at historic cities and their art and architecture first hand, traveling to London and Paris on my way in, Barcelona, Venice and Rome over spring break, Marrakesh, Fes and Casablanca on a weekend trip with friends, and Florence, Berlin, Reykjavik, and Helsinki as a final trip before returning home. The experience was overwhelmingly positive, and I think the new environment and close living quarters has made me a more patient and adaptable person, skills I will surely use in my day to day life moving forwards.
