Research and Work Opportunities for Students

In addition to its many course offerings, the department provides numerous opportunities for field-oriented studies, independent research, internships, and jobs.

These include several field-based courses and access for independent research at:

  • Arnot Teaching and Research Forest near Ithaca 
  • Little Moose Field Station in the Adirondacks 
  • Cornell Biological Field Station on Oneida Lake near Syracuse
  • Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest in New Hampshire
  • numerous natural areas near campus.

Part-time jobs in the research and extension programs of many faculty members offer students opportunities for career-related work experience. Many department faculty members also work closely with students who wish to pursue a research honors degree.
