There are numerous Education Abroad opportunities in Natural Resources and Environmental Science and it is possible to fit a summer, semester, or year abroad into your curriculum. In addition, many students choose to do their internship abroad. Below is a brief overview of some of the programs offered. Please click here for a more detailed list. For every one opportunity that is below, there are three more listed on the Education Abroad website.

When you search the programs, perform an "Advanced Search" and make sure to choose ALL of the "Areas of Study" that remotely interest you. Each program around the world have different names for Natural Resources and Environmental Science and thus list them differently. Don't be surprised if your search has over 20 "Areas of Study".
