    Study Abroad: Alia Abboud

    Majors: International Business and Musical Arts '15
    Study Abroad Program: Nice, France

    I started to study French in 6th grade, and I wanted to take my language skills to the next level. The Université de Nice offered a variety of courses in both of my majors (music and international business), so that made it a great fit for me. I was able to take a mixture of courses in French and English. I also wanted to escape Minnesota and experience a different climate, so the French Riviera was the perfect solution! After taking classes at a big university, I appreciate the small, intimate Hamline community so much more. As far as my professional life, I'm highly considering living and working abroad after college and that opens so many more possibilities to me.
