Jonathan DeMarco ’20: “Engineers—or Anyone— Should Study Abroad”

Friday, September 21, 2018

Jonathan DeMarco ’20 is a Civil Engineering Major at UMass Amherst who studied abroad in France last semester. Before he left, he didn’t think it was possible to study abroad and graduate on time in his major.

DeMarco recently wrote about his experience in a blog at CEA Study Abroad:

“ I was hearing things like, ‘Engineers can’t study abroad, our curriculum won’t allow it,’ or ‘You won’t learn what you need to learn to be an engineer if you go abroad and you’ll have to stay an extra year.’ I would like to say that these things are absolutely not true.”
