Pathways to Study Abroad for Biology Majors
Biology majors are encouraged to spend a semester studying abroad. Many exciting opportunities are available. Sophomore year and fall semester of the junior year are the most convenient times for students to study abroad. Fall semester of the senior year also is possible.
Since 1997, Biology majors have taken a range of Biology courses toward major requirements in Great Britain, Australia, New Zealand, and other countries. In addition, students have completed Undergraduate Curriculum requirements while studying abroad.
Students also have the opportunity to complete internships or independent research projects at a number of internationally recognized institutions such as the London Zoo and the Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia.
Since it is important that students plan ahead for study abroad, they should consult with their advisers as soon as possible and make their intentions known to their academic advisers, the Department Chair, and the Associate Dean of International Affairs.
