Cornell Abroad Programs with International Opportunities

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.

Cornell Abroad now called Office of Global Learning.  Students can spend a semester abroad and transfer academic credit from courses they take overseas to their Cornell program. This program caters to the needs of all Cornell students, although there are a number listed below that are specific or useful for IRD students

Visiting the Office of Global Learning website is an important first step toward embarking on an unforgettable, culturally and academically enriching adventure.

Cornell offers a wide array of opportunities to make meaningful international experience a part of your Cornell education.  You may choose to study abroad to enroll at a world-renowned university, improve language skills, conduct fieldwork or research, engage in service learning, or participate in an internship.  Whatever you choose, Cornell Abroad can assist you every step of the way from the moment you begin your application, throughout your term abroad, and even after you return to Cornell.

CALS Exchange Program - similarly, students can take these exchange programs and transfer academic credit to their Cornell degrees. Many of these are in developed countries and not necessarily tailored for IARD students but there are some recent ones in developing countries.

Cornell Global Fellows program --The CALS Global Fellows Program supports CALS undergraduate students from any major in pursuit of challenging, professionally-focused summer internships that enhance and complement their career goals and academic progress, while enriching their undergraduate experience with diverse cultural and international immersion.  The program provides professional development, logistical, and financial support.
