"This program was beneficial in earning credit hours but also in gaining better connections with GW Psychology professors and helping students focus on their area of interest in the field. Due to the nature of the small class sizes, I felt confident in discussing my personal viewpoints about controversial topics in a professional and academic setting."
Amishi Desai, Health Promotion & Disease Prevention in Minority Communities Summer Institute
"I would recommend this institute to each and every student. Regardless of background, experience or degree sought, this course offers an opportunity for personal and professional growth and reflection. An amazing group of speakers and a superb teaching staff present topics, often avoided or difficult to discuss, but abundantly necessary for a life lived to its fullest."
Lisa Stern, Grief, Loss & Life Transitions Summer Institute
"Between the historical and religious tours, to the individual speakers and the experience they bring with them to discussions - this short-term abroad gave me a large picture of how complicated, sometimes difficult, and yet fascinating the part of the world Israel is situated in is. I can confidently say that it was definitely worth my time and money - I wish there were more offered for my specific graduate program so I could take another course next summer!"
Laura Bolsevic, Short-Term Abroad: Tel Aviv
"I highly recommend this program. The Baltic States are a part of the world often over looked, but are both musically and politically fascinating. Meeting groups like the Latvian Voices as well as performing in many beautiful historic churches were true highlights and made the trip quite memorable. Many of the places visited - especially Estonia - were remarkably beautiful."
