Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2017-2018.

Group intensive study of current research in ornithology built around a research seminar series covering a wide variety of projects and topics in ornithology and related disciplines, including avian ecology, evolution, conservation, behavior, and physiology. Each weekly seminar is followed by informal discussion and networking that builds connections among the large community of Cornell students and scholars with an interest in avian biology. Students at all stages are welcome (not just graduate students). The participation of ornithologically inclined undergraduates, graduate students, and postdocs who are in their first Fall at Cornell is particularly encouraged, as this venue creates connections that often lead to additional experiential opportunities.

When Offered Fall.
