Do all architectural students have an opportunity to do a semester in both Rome and in NYC if they want to? Are they able to take part in other abroad programs offered through Cornell?
Yes! All Architecture students currently spend a semester in Rome. Many also go to New York City for a semester during their 4th or 5th year, especially if their thesis is related to NYC in some way. For Rome, students are assigned which semester in the 3rd year they will go. NYC requires an application.
Rome and NYC are the semester opportunities that will keep you on track to graduate on time.
Architecture students also have a lot of travel opportunities in upper level studio classes. Recent travel studios have gone to Berlin, Turkey, Spain, Dubai, China, Cuba, Colombia, etc.
