SUNY Oneonta offers semester- and year-long study abroad and exchange programs through the Office of International Education in partnership with universities in Finland, Ghana, Germany, Greece, Israel, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, South Korea, Sweden, Taiwan and the United Kingdom. But the possibilities don’t end there. You’ll also have access to more than 600 study abroad and exchange programs around the world through the SUNY network.
If you’ve got a touch of wanderlust, but can’t commit to a whole semester abroad, consider participating in a short-term faculty-led field course. These trips are usually part of a semester-long or summer course and typically last 10 days to three weeks, offering hands-on learning in your field, plus immersion in another culture.
Recent trips have taken biology students to a rainforest in Peru; social science students to the bright lights of Hong Kong; and music students to Israel, where they performed at the Musrara Mix Festival alongside musicians with whom they had collaborated via Skype. Some courses have incorporated service learning activities, including distributing school supplies to children on the Colombia island of San Andres and analyzing water quality at a lake in Guatemala.
Three special scholarships are available to support students who might otherwise not have the financial means to study abroad. Made possible through gifts from alumni, faculty, staff and community members, the College at Oneonta Foundation 30th Anniversary Scholarship, the Bill and Khuki Woolever Scholarship and the Dr. Warren and Mrs. Rita Wellman Scholarship are offered each year to qualifying students.
