Global Seminar, May Session 2023 | BIOL 3905 (3 credits)
During this three-week program, students will examine innovation across a variety of disciplines and consider how solutions to problems facing society require creativity, collaboration, and new ways of thinking. Explore how organizational, political, cultural, and social environments can foster innovation, using the Swedish context.
By immersing in Swedish culture, we will better understand its role in facilitating an innovative environment as we examine the reasons behind Sweden’s ranking (#2 in 2019) on the Global Innovation Index and the Nobel Prize, international awards bestowed by Swedish institutions that recognize significant academic, cultural and scientific advances.
Spend May session in Stockholm, home of the Nobel Peace Prize and European hub of design, academics, culture, and scientific advances. Receive major elective credit for Biology and COP majors. Fulfills the Global Perspectives liberal education theme.
This program is led by Nikki Letawsky Shultz, Assistant Dean for Student Affairs and International Programs, College of Biological Sciences.
