International Opportunities

The Department of Biochemistry offers several opportunities for undergraduate students to study or do research outside the U.S. Students can travel to Uganda, England, or Germany.

Additional opportunities are available through CALS International Programs and the Study Abroad office. If you’re looking at an opportunity outside of those offered through the department, it’s important to find a program that fits your academic needs. Major Advising Pages (MAPs) are a guide to your major’s (or certificate’s) academic requirements in relation to study abroad. Please be sure to review the Biochemistry MAP as you consider your study abroad options.
