Global Classroom


Learning and research doesn't take place just inside the labs and classrooms at the College of Science, our students have the chance to travel, learn, research, and test their science knowledge around the globe, from the mountains of Switzerland to the waterways of the Amazon or New Zealand, and the deserts of the American West to partake in paleontological digs.

Learning outside on a global scale is a Hokie Science tradition.
