Biotechnology is used to solve practical problems and to answer fundamental research questions throughout the world.  Biotechnology majors can benefit from a study abroad experience by learning about the key scientific, social, economic, commercial, and ethical issues associated with the development and growth of the biotechnology industry on a global stage.  Students majoring in Biotechnology may also find benefit by using their elective credit or general education requirements to supplement an international experience.
