Such immersion can rapidly increase language proficiency and cultural understanding.

ALUMNI PROFILE
Kristy

“By studying another language, its culture and history, I feel like my horizons have really been broadened. It’s almost like growing a new set of eyes to see the world with.”

- KRISTY SIGMETH recently completed her Bachelor of Arts with a major in German and minors in linguistics and psychology. She has spent several semesters in Germany, honing her language skills and immersing herself in German culture. “Having fluency in a second language and having international experience is good for my resume. But most importantly, I find that living on my own abroad matured and strengthened me,” she says.
