"The experience of living in another country is invaluable for anyone living in the multi-cultural 21st century. Particularly so for the theater artist, whose job is to explore the nature of human relationships. The lure of excellence in the British theater tradition (from Shakespeare to the present-day contemporary London stage) makes Great Britain an obvious choice for the theater major, but don’t stop there! Living in any other culture broadens your perspective and understanding of the world at large. Throwing yourself into a foreign culture; the language, food, customs, architecture and history of another people, is a thrilling, challenging and life- altering experience. Experienced with an open heart and mind, the differences between us are endlessly engaging, and at the same time they make our common humanity profound."
