Study Abroad & Study USA

The University of Mississippi Department of Biology offers many opportunities for students interested in broadening their horizons via travel and study both inside and outside the United States. The locations and courses chosen for these excursions grant our students a more holistic view of the field of biology beyond our classrooms on campus. Applications for study outside the USA are available from the University of Mississippi Study Abroad office. For opportunities away from the University of Mississippi but within the United States, visit the Study USA office.
