This program takes you on an exciting trip across Europe—4 countries—to visit sites ranging from historical landmarks to institutions conducting cutting edge research in genetics. Your studies will begin in Vienna, Austria, with a side trip to the Mendel Museum in the Czech Republic. You will then continue by air to England and stay at the University of Cambridge, which is steeped in the history of genetics. Next you will fly to Stockholm, Sweden, which hosts the Nobel Prize. This “genetics immersion” program takes a research and molecular based approach. The program will broaden your life and scientific views and increase your knowledge about opportunities to further study/work abroad, all while enjoying the variety of academic and national cultures.

Tutoring Opportunity: Students who have already taken BIS 101 or a similar genetics course are eligible to apply as tutors: two positions available, courses MCB 197T & MCB 198.

The onsite coordinator abroad will be Capt. Ingemar Olsson, who has extensive travel experience and foreign language proficiency.
