Study Abroad Opportunities

Each year some 200 CALS undergraduates spend a semester or year studying abroad. CALS recognizes that students study abroad for a variety of reasons, and as a result, offers a great deal of choice. Students may want to study abroad to broaden their world view, boost employment prospects, learn a new language, gain independence, discover a new educational system, or all of the above. As soon as a student determines their interest in studying abroad during their time at Cornell, they should speak with their Faculty Advisor or the Undergraduate Program Coordinator to develop a complete graduation plan. It is never too early to start planning.

Find out more how to get started on the CALS International Opportunities page.

Academic Year or Semester Long Opportunities

There are two approved avenues for studying abroad during the Fall, Spring, or the full Academic Year: The CALS Exchange Program or Cornell's Office of Global Learning

Special Programs and Opportunities
