Off-Campus Study in Environmental Studies

If you are interested in pursuing a course of study in environmental studies, there are many opportunities to take your studies off campus and abroad. Check out some of these great opportunities.

Opportunities Through Colgate

Our off-campus study office offers full-semester off-campus study opportunities all over the world. In these programs, you will travel, live, and study with your Colgate classmates and a Colgate faculty adviser whilst simultaneously immersing yourself in the culture of your temporary home.

The study group to the University of Wollongong in New South Wales, Australia (fall, spring) may be of particular interest to you as an environmental studies student. The program is designed for students who have demonstrated a strong affinity for broad-based, interdisciplinary exploration of environmental studies.

For those interested in shorter studies abroad, Colgate also offers extended studies in which students expand upon some courses taken at Colgate during a regular semester with 2–3 week educational trips after the semester to areas relevant to the curricula.
