BIO 210 - Science Without Borders

Scientific instruction and field-based explorations are integrated alongside cultural experiences

in this global study abroad course. This elective offers Biology majors and non-majors an

opportunity to enrich learning through international travel led by SJC faculty members.

Students taking this course will gain first-hand experience of a foreign country’s natural and

scientific resources while at the same time immersing themselves in the culture, history,

cuisine, and tradition. The lecture component take place at SJC during the Spring semester.

The laboratory/immersion component takes place abroad during the month of June. Scientific

topics, cultural excursions, and longevity of the trip will vary depending on location. The course

is expected to run on alternate years to BIO 280, or every other year. Interested students

should contact the Department of Biology and the Global Studies Office.
