International Plan

Georgia Tech offers an International Plan through the Office of International Education. The International Plan is a degree-long program of study integrated into your Biology major. It enables you to develop international competence at a professional level so that you can effectively compete in a global marketplace. The Biology program has integrated international studies, language acquisition, and overseas experience into a traditional Bachelor of Science degree. Upon completing the International Plan, your diploma and transcript will state "Bachelor of Science with international Plan". Significant international studies can differentiate your resume from a crowd competing for positions in industry, academia, or medical school. This curriculum can be completed in four years. Please see your Biology advisor to develop a detailed 4-year plan.
