There is a common misconception that biology majors cannot study abroad. The truth is that with careful planning the majority of biology majors can study abroad- even ones wanting to go on to graduate school, medical school, etc.
Here are some examples of how students fit study abroad into their time at CU
- An IPHY major might go to Wollongong Australia and take two capstone classes
- An EBIO major might go to Monteverde, Costa Rica and get up to 12 credits of upper division EBIO credit including a 4000 level EBIO course
- An MCDB major might go to Regensburg, Germany and participate in research projects that would count towards their MCDB elective credits
- A student interested in public health might go on one of the many study abroad programs focused on public health (Ex: Thailand, Argentina, Chile, etc.)
- Can't go for a whole semester? You might consider going on a global seminar where you travel with a CU Boulder Faculty member
- There are also over 100 summer programs of varying length and cost to work within your schedule and budget
