Behavioral Neuroscience

"The world is a smaller place, and a more interdependent place, than we imagine. We are immersed in our own culture like a fish in water, and we often can't even see it until we get a perspective from outside our culture.”

 -Mary Bower-Russa, Associate Professor of Psychology, GVSU

Biopsychology

Northern Ireland

Studying abroad for a student with a biopsychology major is the perfect opportunity to observe how behavior, biology, nature, and nurture have shaped international communities all over the world. Gain an understanding of how differences in behaviors, attitudes, and beliefs can be influenced by variations between cultures.

Students interested in combining their study abroad experience with an internship, or those looking to focus solely on an internship, have many options. Customized internships are available in a few locations through GVSU internships, as well as other programs such as ELAP and World Endeavors
