International Opportunities

CALS recognizes that individuals study abroad for a variety of reasons, and as a result, offers a great deal of choice to students. 

Academic Year or Semester Long Opportunities

Students attending study abroad programs during the fall or spring are required to obtain pre-approval from their faculty advisor and the CALS Study Abroad Advisor. There are two approved channels for studying abroad during the fall or spring: Cornell's Office of Global Learning or the CALS Exchange Program.  Rest assured there are literally hundreds of options (in more than 70 countries) from which to choose!

Search here for all on- and off-campus global opportunities. Be sure to filter your search by “Agriculture and Life Sciences” to see all CALS-approved programs! You will also find opportunities for career development, community-engaged learning and service, fellowships and funding, research, and other special interest programs.

Please note: Students cannot petition retroactively for credit for study abroad undertaken while a Cornell student. All students who would like to study abroad must apply through the CALS Exchange Program or Cornell's Office of Global Learning prior to the study abroad experience.
