Biology majors at Washington University are encouraged to seek opportunities to study abroad for a semester or a summer. International experiences introduce students to different cultures and languages. Some majors use this opportunity to learn more about topics ranging from health care systems to ecosystems. Some popular programs for our majors include the DIS Copenhagen, University College London, University of Queensland, and Organization for Tropical Studies (Costa Rica, South Africa) Programs. The full list of Overseas Programs is rapidly growing with the popularity and importance of studying abroad.
