Study Options

Several study options are open to ILR undergraduates, making it possible to tailor a program to fit special circumstances.

Some students elect to spend a semester in New York City, Albany, or Washington, D.C., with a chance to observe actual labor problem solving as interns in congressional offices, labor organizations, personnel offices, and state and federal agencies. For more information, see “Special Academic Programs .”

Study abroad opportunities are available in numerous countries and foreign universities. Qualified students may spend a semester or a full year studying abroad.

A number of ILR courses deal directly with today’s workplace issues and involve fieldwork in the Ithaca area and elsewhere in the country.

With early planning, some students may apply for and earn the M.S. degree in the fifth year.


Students may pursue minors in any department in any college that offers them, subject to limitations placed by the department offering the minor or by the students’ major. Completed minors will appear on the student’s transcript. Not all departments offer minors. Consult the appropriate section in this catalog or contact the appropriate department for information on minors offered and how to pursue a minor.
