Expand your scientific horizons
the whole world over
Interested in exploring another culture? Engaging in field research? Discovering new academic perspectives? We offer education abroad opportunities to satisfy any of your global goals - because our goal is to offer all Science majors the opportunity to explore the world and develop a global perspective.
At Penn State, we have hundreds of ways you can study abroad for a semester or a full academic year. Before making any final decisions, you’ll want to review your choices with your academic adviser so that you can determine any required courses. Check out the different trips available to you across four continents and eleven countries.
If you'd prefer to study abroad only during a summer break, winter break, or spring break, these programs are for you. You can earn three to six credits while you’re abroad for one to four weeks, without losing any time in your other classes. Short-term Science programs focus on experiential learning, often through field study or lab research.
Research & Internships Abroad
Immerse yourself in your research or professional interests while on an international program, either through another university abroad or a global provider. You have numerous options for international research and internships, so you can investigate and select courses and programs from around the world.
