Pathways to Study Abroad in Biology

Many exciting opportunities are available for studying abroad. Sophomore year and fall semester of the junior year are the most convenient times for students to study abroad. Fall semester of the senior year also is possible.

Arcadia has more than 122 programs around the world. Biology majors have taken a range of Biology courses toward major requirements in Great Britain, Australia, New Zealand, and other countries. In addition, students have completed Undergraduate Curriculum requirements while studying abroad.

Students also have the opportunity to complete internships or independent research projects at a number of internationally recognized institutions such as the London Zoo and the Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia.

Since it is important that students plan ahead for study abroad, they should consult with their advisers as soon as possible and make their intentions known to their academic advisers, the Department Chair, and the Associate Dean of International Affairs.





      Students that wish to take upper level biology courses (200 level and above) must have met one of the following two criteria:

      The average of the student’s grades in BI101 and BI102 must be greater than or equal to a C- (1.7).


      The student must have received transfer credit for BI101 and BI102.
