As the world is growing smaller, universities, including Rutgers, are looking for opportunities to enhance cultural awareness and cross-cultural experiences for students. At the Rutgers School of Environmental and Biological Sciences, we are no different in our desire to participate in this internationalization effort and encourage students to explore the world through science.
Although the internet age can bring many parts of the world to us instantly on a computer screen or a telephone, the educational experience obtained with travel or study abroad is unique and unforgettable. Not only is there a special opportunity for culture and language exchange, all aspects of science and technology are being pursued and shared in a world that is steadily becoming smaller. It is a learning and living experience that can open our horizon and take us to exciting and enchanting locales.
There are numerous study abroad opportunities offered at Rutgers University. SEBS students have the option of participating in short-term summer and winter programs designed with their academic interests in mind, international research and internship opportunities, and traditional semester or academic year options.
