Summer 17 field courses & research in Alaska | Tatoosh School

The Tatoosh School is a nonprofit, university-level field school with a
beachfront base camp on Prince of Wales Island and lecture halls in the
towns, ocean, and forests of Alaska’s Inside Passage. It is the school’s
mission to foster first-hand learning about the ecology and environmental
policy of southern Southeast Alaska.

Rigorous academics focus on the development of a sense of place, a
passion for civic engagement and a sound knowledge of the Pacific coastal
ecoregion. You can earn up to 12 quarter units of credit and leave
empowered to explore your surroundings with wide-eyed curiosity and to
reach out as an active and informed citizen.

Students are field scientists and participate in several long-term
ecological research programs in collaboration with partners of the Tatoosh School.
