If you are interested studying biology abroad, the College of Biological Sciences has a fantastic program for you. Each May, Professor Sehoya Cotner leads students on an exploration of the Galapagos Islands in Ecuador! This three-week learning abroad program gives students the unique opportunity to walk to steps of Charles Darwin and explore first-hand the origins of evolutionary biology.
The Biology of the Galapagos is one of 300+ study abroad programs offered by the University of Minnesota's Learning Abroad Center (the largest study abroad program in the nation!) No matter what or where you are interested in studying, the Learning Abroad Center has programs to fit your academic goals, travel dreams, and budget.
Even if you are only remotely thinking about studying abroad, talk to you academic adviser about it right when you get on campus. Planning ahead is key! The Learning Abroad Center offers First-Step Meetings that give basic information about programs, services, and resources available through their office. No need to make an appointment, just show up. I highly recommend taking advantage of the amazing experience to explore the world while earing your degree!
