January 13 - May 7, 2014
This semester-long study abroad program is designed for two specific student cohorts:
Biomedical Science majors (includes life-science majors: BIMS, BIOL, GENE, MICR, PSYC, etc.)
Bioengineering majors (includes BMEN & RHEL majors)
Along with providing students with international experiences programmatically linked to all of their courses, the program is designed so that participating students do not "fall behind" their on-campus peers in terms of progression towards advanced coursework and their baccalaureate degrees.
Stream 2: BMEN & RHEN
The program includes a large number of day-long and overnight field trips to museums, research institutions, medical and veterinary medical schools, and other sites of historical and cultural importance throughout Germany and neighboring EU countries. Some examples include visits to the Sigmund Freud House and Museum in Vienna, the UniKlinik at Bonn University (where students will have the opportunity to observe surgical procedures), and the Museum of the History of Medicine in Berlin.
Proposed scheduled trips include: Cologne, Hannover, Aachen, Remagen, Vienna, and Berlin. Students are free to travel throughout Europe on the weekends and during spring break.
