Don't Miss the Boat (or Plane)!  Study Abroad as a Biological Sciences Major

Cornell Biological Sciences majors study all over the world! It's not difficult to fit in a study abroad experience (even if you are pre-med or pre-grad) as long as you plan early.  Students can count up to two courses taken abroad toward the major.  To count a course toward a Concentration, students must get their faculty advisor's approval.  For approval of any other Biological Sciences major requirement, or for other questions, please contact Jeff McCaffrey in the OUB at jm298@cornell.edu.

Visit the Office of Global Learning in 300 Caldwell Hall to explore opportunities in different countries and regions, review evaluations from students who've been abroad, discuss financial aid, and peruse catalogs and other program resource materials.  Here are some links to help you get started:

Stories from Bio Sci majors: Conservation in Cuba, Sea Cucumbers in Zanzibar, and On the Ground in Madagascar

Each Cornell college has a study abroad advisor who is responsible for approving a student's study abroad academic plan and advising students on college abroad guidelines and appropriate course selection. Arts and Sciences students should see Clare McMillan in KG17 Klarman Hall and CALS students must attend a CALS Study Abroad 101 before making an appointment with a study abroad advisor in 140 Roberts Hall.
