There is a common misconception that biology majors cannot study abroad. With careful planning, biology majors can study abroad, including students planning to pursue graduate study, a health profession, 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 Core 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 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? Consider going on a Global Seminar where you travel with a CU Boulder faculty member in Winter Session or Maymester
- There are also over 100 summer programs of varying length and cost to work within your schedule and budget
