    Global Perspective
    Opportunities through Keough School Institutes

    Junior Francine Shaft thought her theology and Japanese majors would never intersect—until she went abroad.

    Through funding she secured partially via the Liu Institute for Asia and Asian Studies, Shaft traveled to Japan the summer after her first year to participate in a Japanese language program.

    Her experience abroad helped with her summer research project, laid the groundwork for her senior thesis, and led her to a research assistantship.

    It also showed Shaft the true value of a liberal arts education.
