Skimming through programs that my school had to offer, I made a list of what I was looking for.
I had a few friends in countries throughout the world, so I wanted to try and travel to one of those countries. I wanted to find a psychology program with opportunities for learning as well as leisure since it was my first time traveling out of the country. And finally, I wanted to study abroad during the summer term. Other than that, I was pretty wide open.
After searching through programs, I found the IES Abroad Summer Psychology Program in Vienna, Austria. This program checked all the boxes, so I filled out an application!
