Spotlight on FTVM Study Abroad Experiences

FTVM student Caroline Schaper ('15) went abroad to Grenoble, France in the summer of 2013. She lived with a French family in the alps and studied at Stendhal University where she took classes in French language, civilization and literature. She's double-majoring in French and FTVM, so all of her credits went to French, but she still participated in a lot of film-related activities, like festivals and museums. She was able to travel around the south of France and visited Switzerland and Monaco.

She also made this short video as a souvenir, which was also featured on the LSA website.

Chelsea Golub studied abroad in London, UK, during the second semester of her junior year on IES Study London Program. She had the most amazing time immersing herself into the British culture and lifestyle. There, she took a combination of the Department of Film, Television, and Media classes as well as International Studies and British Classes. She lived in the trendy Spitalfields area of London and took classes in Holborn in the center of London. She made life-long friends and connections she will never forget. Not only was she able to travel around the UK, but also visited 10 other countries.

FTVM '14 graduate Mary Bridget Welch studied abroad during her junior year, winter semester in London, UK at Queen Mary University of London in the East End. She took a few film studies classes, one about Alfred Hitchcock who was actually from the East End, one about Japanese cinema, and another focusing on audience and reception studies. She traveled to nine different countries and all over the UK.

Overall, it was a truly amazing and rewarding experience!
