WORCESTER, MA (01/31/2019)-- Victoria Williamson, of Hyannis, is taking advantage of the many international study abroad programs offered through Assumption College and spending the spring semester abroad. Williamson, Class of 2020, is studying in Australia.
Studying abroad not only gives Assumption students the chance to obtain class credit, but it offers a unique opportunity for them to interact with different cultures and to approach what they have learned in the classroom from new perspectives, thus giving them an enhanced view of the world around them. This spring, Assumption students are studying abroad in locations across the world such as Australia, the Czech Republic, England, Ireland, Italy, and Spain. In addition, Assumption students are also studying at the College's campus in Rome, Italy, where they can fulfill core requirements while experiencing all that "the Eternal City" has to offer.
