Education Abroad/EAP

Education Abroad Programs (EAP) offer qualified students unique opportunities to broaden their educational horizons.
The EEB Department encourages interested students to  participate. It can be possible to participate in EAP and graduate on time.

It is important to plan early for EAP opportunities.
Begin your exploration of the possibilities at the UCSC International Education Office.  You can learn about EAP, how to apply, when to apply, financial aid availability, and available programs and their requirements.  You can also consider Independent Programs or UC Summer Abroad.  If you need help choosing a program, meet with a Programs Abroad Advisor.

It can be possible to satisfy requirements of your EEB major while abroad.
