University of Wisconsin–Madison

Academic Year 2017-2018

Marissa Miller – National University of Galway in Ireland

Vitals: History and Anthropology Major, Archaeology Minor

Goals: One of my major goals while I am in Ireland is to learn as much as I can about Irish history and archaeology.  I want to attend graduate school for Irish history, so one of my goals is to look at specific programs to see which universities catch my eye. In addition to my academic goals, I also want to travel around Europe as much as possible.

Motivation:  I have studied in Ireland once before and, since the moment I left, I have been itching to go back. Ireland is my second home, so it was an easy decision to study abroad in Ireland again. I chose the NUI-Galway program because it will allow me to begin to learn Irish in a more Irish speaking part of the country while allowing me to soak up the beauty of the west coast of Ireland.

Previous overseas travel:  Ireland, Scotland, England, France, Belgium, and the Netherlands.
