Although we love the Adirondacks, we encourage our students to seek study internationally. Students can choose to go somewhere during the break between fall and spring semester, during a regular semester, or during the summer. Faculty are experienced at helping students find and apply successfully for opportunities.
In the past our students have volunteered at a primate reserve in South America, studied wildlife management in Africa, explored ecological restoration in Ethiopia, and conducted ecological research in Russia – just to name a few!
Thanks to the generosity of Mr. Sterling Tomkins, most of our students receive scholarships to help defray travel and tuition costs when they study internationally.
Below are a few links to opportunities. Please see your advisor or other faculty for assistance in finding an opportunity that is right for you. Dr. Celia Evans, International Programs Advisor, is also available for assistance.
