English & Creative Writing Off-campus Courses
Our One Course At A Time calendar allows us to extend our classroom to exciting locations beyond campus on a regular basis. The following are the current courses that spend extended time off campus. Other courses may incorporate off-campus study for shorter periods. We're mapping new locations for literary studies and creative writing with topics courses in southern Africa, the Bahamas, Chicago, and Italy.
Theatre, Architecture, and the Arts in England
Every other year English professors lead 20-26 students on a tour through modern and historic England, with emphasis on important architectural sites and live theatre. The trip is the highlight of many Cornell careers. Read more about this off-campus course.
American Nature Writers & Modern American Literature
These potentially life-changing courses are taught at the Wilderness Field Station in northern Minnesota as part of Cornell's annual Wilderness Term. Each course includes a canoe journey into the Boundary Waters Canoe Area. Read more about American Nature Writers.
