With several off-campus study programs designed specifically for those in the sciences, chemistry students at Colgate are free to add real-world experience to their resumes while staying on track academically.
Semester-long Study Groups
All study groups are led by a Colgate faculty member. They are specially designed to maximize students’ experiences when studying abroad while maintaining high academic standards. All credits earned while studying with a Colgate off-campus study group count toward graduation, and a portion of the credits may be applied toward major requirements.
The four programs highlighted below are specifically designed for students in the sciences:
Chemistry and biochemistry majors have also participated in off-campus study programs at the University of Manchester, England (fall), the University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand (spring), and the University of Freiburg, Germany (spring for those with German proficiency).
Studying off campus doesn’t have to be a full-semester affair. Some courses at Colgate are designated as extended studies. For two to three weeks after the conclusion of the regular semester, students and faculty in these courses travel to apply their classroom learning in the field. Extended studies offer students the opportunity to learn globally without losing a full semester of study on campus.
