Studying abroad for a major or minor is highly encouraged and students can take advantage of the extensive selection of fall, spring, and summer programs offered by the Study Abroad office. In Exchange Programs like the Auckland University Studies Program, students take courses for graduation credit and work with the Biology Department to apply the courses to their major.

BU is also affiliated with the School for Field Studies which has a network of field stations in Australia, Costa Rica, Kenya, Mexico, and Turks and Caicos. This program teaches students how to address critical environmental problems using an interdisciplinary, experiential approach to education. For more information, visit the School for Field Studies website.
