Madeline Faber – St. Mary’s University College in Belfast

madeline“My semester at St. Mary’s University College in Belfast was a huge experience. Northern Ireland was a great fit for me because I was able to study in a country that has such a rich literary history. The curiculum is ideal for humanities majors, and it was flexible enough to satisfy my degree paradigm. St. Mary’s is small and safe and has a lot of the same characteristics that attract me to Christian Brothers. St. Mary’s makes special efforts to help the international studies integrate, and now I can say that I have friends all over Europe. I used Belfast’s harbor location to easily ferry to England and Scotland, and those trips supplemented valuable insight to my classroom learning. I encouage anyone who is thinking about having an international adventure to make an appointment with the study abroad staff. My four months in Europe continue to affect me, and I’ll always be thankful for Christian Brothers for making that incredible time possible.” - Madeline Faber, Junior English Major
