Global Health Experiences Internships

 

Picture yourself learning about DNA structures at the institution where the double helix was discovered, embracing life in a foreign culture while diving into science or General Education coursework, or researching cutting-edge CMB at a foreign institution.

The best time for CMB students to go abroad tends to be early in their college careers, when gen eds and more basic science classes are still available.  Internships, especially during summers, could also be a great way to boost your science resume in preparation for a career or graduate school.

Many comprehensive universities in Europe and Australia offer science courses taught in English, and Arcadia University or EuroScholars could provide you the opportunity to perform laboratory science abroad.
