A physics major with an astronomy concentration, Charlotte Martinkus ’15 enrolled in classes in nuclear physics and planetary systems at Uppsala University in Sweden, along with courses in Swedish language and culture. One of the only European programs that would also help her fulfill her science major requirements, CIEE Sweden seemed like the logical choice for study abroad.

Physics major Ruby Byrne '14 took a different route for her studying abroad experience, and went to Oxford University last spring to study physics. She attended St. Catherine's College in Oxford, where she also lived in the residence halls.  read about Ruby's experience at Oxford
