Programs Offered

OTS offers study abroad programs and biology research internships sponsored by the National Science Foundation. All OTS courses are structured on field-based, experiential learning under the close guidance of highly qualified academic professors and visit a diversity of habitats and communities. In any OTS program, students will meet active researchers and local stakeholders while developing the skills needed for advanced studies and careers in biology, resource management, or global health.

Our undergraduate programs provide students with unique, hands-on learning experiences in Costa Rica and South Africa. OTS undergraduate students have the opportunity to immerse themselves in Costa Rica and South Africa both scientifically and culturally to experience a variety of different ecosystems throughout these countries and to create their own independent research projects.
