Biology and zoology students can earn OSU credit in a wide variety of professionally relevant international opportunities. Students can choose from study abroad programs in multiple countries, many of them in English. Some students elect to do an international internship to focus on professional experience abroad.

The experience of a lifetime

Biology and zoology students are involved in international experiences for good reason. An international experience can develop professional skills and the ability to work with an increasingly diverse U.S. population. Graduate schools, professional programs and employers in health care, academia, non-profits, industry and government agencies value the skills and experiences gained by students who go abroad.
