BIO 3090 - Global Field Studies Program

Credits: 4
Each course offered in the Global Field Studies Program is an intensive experiential learning opportunity involving a lecture/classroom component and field work in environmentally significant locations around the world. Different ecosystems are studied and compared, and every course focuses on the natural history of the particular location both from an integrated biological perspective [zoology, botany, ecology, biogeography, microbiology and evolution], as well as consideration of the human and cultural aspects of the region. Students develop an awareness and appreciation for both biological and cultural diversity and complexity. There is an additional fee for travel. Open to majors and non-majors. (Students may enroll in more than one field studies course, using a different course number for each.)
Prerequisite(s): Permission of instructor.
