Molecular Biology Abroad
Special Program for Molecular Biology Majors
The Molecular Biology Study Abroad Program at University College, London
The study abroad program at UCL offers students a curriculum with a highly unique element, a specially designed course credit in which students explore an independent experimental project in a faculty laboratory. This opportunity exposes students to the culture of a major research institution and is in keeping with the research focus of the Pomona Molecular Biology Program. The research course is nested alongside three other courses, one of which was selected as meeting the biochemistry requirement for the program. This program was designed by Pomona faculty working in collaboration with Pomona’s office of study abroad and Prof. Chris Taylorson of UCL’s Department of Molecular Biosciences.
Previous research experience is required to apply to this program! If interested in the UCL study abroad program make sure to plan ahead of time and to get involved in a research experience before applying.
Study abroad is possible for Molecular Biology majors and it is very popular. However, it is important to know that the ONLY window of opportunity is the fall semester of your junior year.
There are a variety of opportunities for our students to take courses that are relevant to the Molecular Biology Program and also there is room for students to take advantage of programs that dot not offer molecular biology related courses and still complete their major.
