Consider the International Internships (IE3) program:

Internships provide hands-on learning opportunities that can supplement your education in meaningful ways. By working overseas, you'll gain real insight into different cultures, industries and organizations. Internships range in length from 10 weeks to 6 months for full-time work, and you can earn academic credit at OSU for the experience. You can work in Australia, New Zealand, Africa, Europe, Asia, and in North or South America in fields like Environmental Science, Life Science/Resource Management, and a variety of other areas.

You might wish to obtain the International Degree

The International Degree is a dual degree program. Students can earn two degrees: a Bachelor's degree in any science major plus a Bachelor of Arts in International Studies.  This program immerses students in another culture and add a significant international component to your career portfolio. To see one example, check out the International Degree option in Biology.
