  • If you feel that you have completed coursework at other institutions or at Cornell that fall into these categories, you will have the opportunity to discuss the courses and why they meet the prerequisite requirements in the application portion.
  • Complete a one-credit pre-internship spring semester course for Lund Fellows, taught by the Lund Program Coordinator and/or other professionals and potentially including visits to local farms and farmers’ markets.
