You don't have to choose between working, studying, or going abroad this summer!

Dr. Alan Mathew, Department Head of Animal Science, will work with those students interested in taking an independent study option while abroad. Don't miss out on this opportunity to intern for:

Students must be willing to take part in the Laos portion of the experience to be considered for one of these internships. Please note that while much of the costs associated with the Laos experience will be covered, participants are responsible for some costs (i.e. airfare, immunizations, passport).

Not sure about traveling Laos? Or even unsure of where it is? You'll be happy to know that the European Council on Tourism and Trade named Laos the World's Best Tourism Destination in 2013. Get excited about the cultural experience that awaits you in Laos by checking out The Lonely Planet's online resource​.
