Wildlands Studies at Western Washington University is holding a student information for their field study courses on campus!
- When: Thursday, May 4th at 4:00pm
- Where: Center Hall 202
Wildlands Studies field projects provide students with the opportunity to join backcountry study teams as working field associates, studying environmental impact assessment, environmental policy, geologic, climatic and topographic factors that support various habitats, and the relationships between environments and culture.
Most participants are undergraduates who join on site from all over North America and Canada. Each program grants 5-15 quarter credits of upper division credit (equal to 3.35-10 semester credit) that easily transfers to the student’s home institution. Project teams consist of 8-16 participants working with a course instructor who provides onsite instruction and directs all field study activities.
This year students can choose among eighteen wildlife, wildland and cultural ecology field studies searching for solutions to environmental and cultural challenges. Our 6-week field courses take place in:
- Costa Rica/Panama
- New Zealand
- Northern Europe
- South Africa
- *The 2-week field courses take place in Banff (Canada), Big Sur (California), California Channel Islands, and Yellowstone.
