Off-Campus Study in Geography

An interest in geography usually goes hand in hand with a curiosity to see and understand more about the world in which we live. Our robust off-campus study opportunities will allow you to pursue your interests around the world.

Colgate Semester Programs

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.

Our department co-sponsors (with Environmental Studies) a semester-long study group to the University of Wollongong in Australia (fall, spring).

There is also a student exchange program with the University of Wollongong that allows select Colgate and Wollongong students to pursue comparative research in American and Australian contexts. Exchange students work directly with Colgate and UoW faculty to produce research which is worthy of professional publication in both social and environmental geography.

Extended Studies

Some geography courses include an extended study opportunity in which course participants continue the class off campus for two or three weeks at the conclusion of the semester. Check out the current extended study opportunities from all departments.

Other Programs

As a university, we also are directly affiliated with several other off-campus study programs you may find interesting. Check out all affiliated off-campus study programs.
