Study Abroad

Cornell Biological Sciences majors study all over the world!

It's not difficult to fit in a study abroad experience (even if you are pre-med or pre-grad) as long as you plan early. Students can count up to two courses taken abroad toward the major. To count a course toward a concentration, students must send a syllabus and a description of how they would like to use the course (toward a specific concentration category, for example) to their faculty advisor for approval. The advisor and student should save the correspondence for reference when it's time to complete the application to graduate during senior year. For approval of any other Biological Sciences major requirement, or for other questions, please contact Jeff McCaffrey (jm298) in the OUB.

Each Cornell college has a study abroad advisor who is responsible for approving a student's study abroad academic plan and for advising students on college abroad guidelines and appropriate course selection. More info for A&S students here and for CALS students here.
