Academic Opportunities

At Syracuse, you’ll do more than just pursue your passion. You’ll be given the tools and opportunities that will enable you to flourish in your chosen area of study.

Your anthropology major could lead to assisting archaeologists while studying abroad in China. Your chemistry major could lead to collaborating with your professor in publishing research findings. Or you may prefer to let your art studies take you out of the classroom and into the many on-campus galleries.

Whatever you’re interested in, you can learn more about it here. See why nearly half of Syracuse students study abroad. Learn how you can be among the best of the best in our Honors program. And discover our tools for academic success.
