With a focus on hands-on, immersion learning, this 10-day course provides students with a deep understanding of the mechanisms that conservation and environmental sciences use to understand the world. Using Southeast Alaska as a case study for understanding the impact of climate, students will come to understand that social and environmental challenges are complex and inextricably linked. Through this experience, students extend their understanding that ecological and sociological systems are place-specific yet globally connected. As such, students are compelled to reexamine their values and alter their behavior in order to live sustainably.
