Andrea Gooder | Germany

Andrea is a UW Master’s student who traveled to Germany in the summer of 2012 to complete her thesis research. She spent most of her time in the cities of Frankfurt and Berlin where she lived in a studio apartment and private residence.

Andrea conducted archival research at The German National Library (in Frankfurt) and The Berlin State Library (in Berlin). She said the libraries were, “amazing places to do research, and the (library) staff were very nice.”

Andrea recommends that any students visiting Berlin make time to see The Pergamon Museum, which she called the “most amazing museum I have ever been in.” For students who are completing research abroad, Andrea suggests creating a day-by-day research plan (before you leave). She says this will help you to make the most of your limited time abroad.   
To students thinking of studying abroad, Andrea says  “Any kind of study abroad is an absolutely amazing experience. It changes how you view your own life, the world, and your place in the world. It also teaches you to broaden the limits of what you think you can do in life, which is always a great feeling.
