Biology in English Program, Tokyo Metropolitan University (TMU)
Duration: academic year or Spring semester (Students are not able to do a Fall semester as the TMU Fall semester overlaps with the beginning of the SUNY Spring semester.)
SUNY Oneonta Biology majors who have completed introductory core courses in biology can earn credits towards the 200/300 level biology ELECTIVES by completion of equivalent biology courses at TMU. Required 200/300 level courses (e.g., BIOL 212/269, BIOL 393, other Track-specific required courses) must be taken at SUNY Oneonta. Japanese language and culture courses for international students are also offered in English, which may count towards general education or general electives at SUNY Oneonta. All course equivalencies are contingent upon approval by SUNY Oneonta.

BIOL 132 section 01 and BIOL 282 in Spring 2021 had Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) activities within their regular coursework with biology students and faculty at TMU.
