Study Abroad Experience

Grace Fryer’s three weeks of travelling before starting her 6-month exchange at the University of Sheffield in the UK - were made possible by the criminology study abroad scholarship.

“By having just a bit more funding, I was able to afford living expenses as well as being able to travel around Europe. So, “thank you” to the criminology school for this wonderful opportunity! It turns out no matter where in the world you go you still talk about the same “founding fathers” of criminology and their theories’.
