Study Abroad Experiences

The Department of Psychology offers a number of study abroad experiences, both during the summer and regular semester, including this 2019 trip to Cambodia and Vietnam led by Dr. Jen Wright. One previous student to attend the program is Emily Beck ’17 in Summer 2015. She says of her experience at CofC, “CofC offered me many opportunities to gain professional and personal experience that I am so incredibly thankful for! But I would like to emphasize more than anything else that College taught me the value of true human connection and the power of authenticity. I definitely worked most closely with Dr. Wright who has been the most influential person I have met in my entire life. She has aided so much in both my personal and professional development and I can't thank her enough. Additionally, shout out to Garrett Milliken, Patricia Janes, y'all made me fall in love with the science of it and your support meant the world to me! “
