Interning in Australia: Motivations and Goals

My journey to deciding to intern abroad was fairly simple. Currently, I am a junior studying marketing in the Accelerated Master’s Program. I am thankful I am attending Alabama with a full-tuition scholarship. Additionally, I am ahead in my program coursework because of my AP exams and dual enrollment in high school.

Deciding where to study abroad

During high school I always dreamed about studying abroad in college, so when I started at UA I made it a top priority to plan ahead and make sure I could fit it in/ take classes that worked for my major. Through talking to an amazing study abroad advisor, I narrowed down my choices and, after hours and hours of research on my own, chose to study abroad in San Ramón, Costa Rica. This decision did not come easily to me at first because...

Returning Home

Trying to comprehend how 4 months swiftly passed me by is mind boggling, yet beautiful. My time in Mexico cannot be explained in the way that I want because it opened the door for me to reach new heights and achieve things I never thought I would achieve.

Going to Ghana

Hello! My name is Kelly Muston. I am a Master of Social Work student. I will be completing an international internship in Ghana in the Spring of 2019. I would like to say that I have some amazing motivation behind why I chose to study abroad, but it just is not true. I sat in the MSW program orientation and for the first time in my life considered studying abroad. I left that day knowing it was what I wanted to do. I also do not truly...
