Study Abroad

Emory Biology majors have the opportunity to earn academic credit towards their Biology major via courses taken abroad. 

The Emory College Study Abroad office hosts descriptions of many study-abroad programs that can be used.  It is important that students confirm that the courses they would like to take towards a Biology degree are equivalent to our courses.  Interested students should speak with their advisors prior to enrolling.

Additional Biology courses include field trips to locations in Georgia, South Carolina and South America.  Check the Biology course offerings for the availability of these courses.

Emory Biology in Queensland, Australia


The Biology and Environmental Studies Departments have a summer study abroad program in tropical north Queensland, Australia. The two departments alternate summers running the program and the courses vary from year to year.  Students in the program take two courses during the 5-week program. The program involves lectures, discussions, and field experiences.

This program will be on hiatus during Summer 2022. We expect the program to run again in Summer 2023.
