Sociology: Study Abroad
What better way to investigate sociological concepts than by making yourself a stranger in a new land? Everything is novel and the rules for social interaction are yet to be learned. Teaching and learning is different. Eating, traveling, and recreation are different. Clothes, language, food, stores, religious practices, industry—the things you’ve come to expect as “normal” are suddenly out of the ordinary when placed in a new context. But studying abroad isn’t just exciting; it’s important for understanding the increasingly global world in which we live, work, love, and interact.
