Home- Academics- Off-Campus Study- Colgate Study Groups Colgate Study Groups Colgate is a leader in off-campus study, typically ranking among the top ten baccalaureate institutions for the number of students studying abroad. Our own faculty teach, mentor, and help students explore. APPLY ONLINE About Our Semester-Long Study Groups Colgate Study Groups take students to study off campus for a semester while immersing them in new cultures, perspectives, and experiences. Students live together with their peers and receive instruction and mentoring from the Colgate faculty member directing the program, as well as from their host institutions. Each study group has its own academic focus, ranging from religion and philosophy studies in St. Andrews, Scotland, to high-level scientific research at the United States' National Institutes of Health. The courses in each of these study groups can be counted toward your graduation and major and minor requirements just like any other Colgate course.
