School of Hotel Administration (SHA) students are encouraged to explore spending a semester or an academic year of study abroad—in Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, or Oceania (Australia and New Zealand)—as an integral part of the undergraduate experience. Study abroad gives students an enriching cultural experience, a deeper understanding of the world, and expanded international career opportunities. Students earn academic credit toward their undergraduate degree while broadening their international horizons.
Through the Cornell Abroad program, SHA students can join other Cornellians—primarily third- and fourth-year students—who study in more than 40 countries and enroll in more than 150 programs and universities around the world. Use the interactive map on the Cornell Abroad website to explore some of the recommended Study Abroad programs and participating institutions.
For more information, students should refer to the SHA Study Abroad Guidelines and attend both the Study Abroad Information Session and the Study Abroad Advising Session. Once students attend these sessions, they can make an appointment to have their paperwork reviewed in the Office of Student Services, 180 Statler Hall, 607.255.6376, or visit the Cornell Abroad Office in 300 Caldwell Hall, 607.255.6224.
