Research, Internships & Study Abroad
Education occurs beyond the classroom at Columbia. Whether through internships, study abroad programs or research experiences, or perhaps even a mixture of all three, our students seek opportunities to build upon what they have learned here. You might spend a year in Kyoto studying Japanese or a summer working at Google’s New York City headquarters. Or maybe even conduct research with a Nobel Prize winner on campus. The possibilities are limitless. And who knows what these experiences might lead to? You might discover a new career interest or a lifelong passion for something previously unimaginable.
The Earth Institute is committed to supporting and showcasing student research in the areas of environment and sustainable development.
