Program Options

Our off-campus programs provide a rich mixture of cultural experience and academic work in areas from science to religion, economics, language, literature, and the arts.

Whether you join a Colgate study group or extended study led by one of our faculty members or participate in an approved program at an institution abroad, we are prepared to help you explore the world.

Prepare for Your Studies

The Office of Off-Campus Study can help you plan your experience:
Get the big picture
Start your off-campus study planning by exploring this website, then take advantage of walk-in hours with a peer adviser to learn about off-campus study options and the application process.
Narrow your options
With so many possibilities, how can you pick just one? Identify the programs of greatest interest to you, then schedule a consultation with OCS's advising staff.
Prepare for departure
