Colgate offers full-semester, faculty-led off-campus study groups in locations all over the world, domestically and abroad. Students who participate in Colgate study groups immerse in new cultures, perspectives, and experiences.
Participants receive instruction and mentoring from the study group’s faculty director. In most programs, students also participate in courses taught at a host institution. All of the academic credits a student earns on a Colgate study group are applicable toward graduation at Colgate, with no complicated credit transfer process.
Each study group has its own academic focus, ranging from religion and philosophy studies in St. Andrews, Scotland, to scientific research at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Md. Students may apply to any Colgate study group, regardless of their major or minor.
