Cornell seeks to become a truly international university, an intellectual community rooted in New York State while fully engaged with the larger world.
In pursuing this vision, Cornell continues to pursue a goal traceable to its founder, Ezra Cornell, to create "an institution where any person can find instruction in any study."
To support students' diverse interests, needs, and desires, a great variety of international options are available to CALS students. While studying abroad for a semester or a year can be one of the most enriching ways to gain an in-depth knowledge of another culture's customs, people, and language (and make progress toward your degree!), it's not the only way. We encourage you explore all of your options--and consider taking advantage of one or more of the opportunities at your fingertips.
Having a meaningful international experience can increase your independence and ability to be flexible. It can enhance marketability when it's time to look for a job. And, as we hear time and time again, it can be life changing.
We openly share valuable knowledge. Often through email.
