Carlos Quintela, SIS/MA '18
The professors' experiences helped ground the material in the real world.
The Environmental and Rural Studies department at Pontificia Universidad Javeriana was very welcoming and offered a broad range of classes that complement my studies at SIS. My experience in Colombia served as a great opportunity to begin brainstorming, designing, and starting the research for my capstone paper. During my semester in Bogota, I tried new foods, improved my Spanish, learned about Colombian environmental policy and trends, took classes that taught valuable skills, and had time to travel and explore my personal academic interests.
