Scientific Roots in the UK and EU
Looking to study abroad? Next spring semester Biology 4798: Scientific Roots in the UK and EU will be offered in coordination with studying abroad in London, England and Paris, France. This course will focus on scientific discoveries that changed the world and changed paradigms, and the study abroad trip will allow students to tour the sites of these discoveries in person.
If interested, there will be information sessions in the fall semester. Scholarship opportunities are available, however deadlines may approach sooner than the study abroad deadline. If you have any questions or would like to show your interest in the course now, you can contact the professors of the course, Dr. John Cogan or Dr. Caroline Breitenberger, or checking the Ohio State Office of International Affairs website.

If you are interested in studying sciences in another country then Biology 4798, Scientific Roots in the UK and EU, is for you! Students will be able to learn during the semester in Columbus about scientific breakthroughs that occurred in England and the EU, and then for spring break take a trip to visit the locations and landmarks associated with those discoveries. Each student will have research projects including the Royal Society, HMS Endeavour, Sir Isaac Newton, Charles Darwin, Kew Gardens, and Cambridge University. There will be a final project where students will get to report and present their findings.
Locations visited over Spring break: London, Cambridge, Lyme Regis, Paris
This is a great opportunity to get started in study abroad, if that is in your plans for the future. Any opportunity to study abroad is an opportunity to learn more and be enriched by other cultures. You will get the opportunity to visit both London, England and for the first time Paris, France as well!
IF enough students enroll this course will be offered in the spring.
While in the past this course has focused on Biology, it has been modified to include both Chemistry and Physics.
