A global experience for Biology majors can help supplement their field subject within the context of a liberal arts education.  Biology majors can benefit from studying abroad by gaining new perspectives, approaches, and experiences in all sub-disciplines of biology. From coursework and cross-cultural relationships to navigating the local transportation system, each experience can help students grow both in their field and as an individual.

See the list of recommended study abroad programs below.  Please be aware that for any external or exchange study abroad programs listed, students will need to check with their academic department to see if courses taken while abroad will transfer and fulfill needed requirements.
