The Bioko Island study abroad program is built on a long-term academic partnership between Drexel University, the Bioko Biodiversity Protection Program, and the National University of Equatorial Guinea (UNGE). It combines individual field research projects, coursework, and the opportunity for students to undertake individual service learning projects or internships.
Students split their time between Malabo, the capital city, and Moka, where Drexel has a permanent research station. While in Malabo, students take their classroom based courses and live in a group house with a Resident Director. In Moka, students undertake their field method and research courses and have the opportunity to experience village life.
