6-week Summer Session:  June 20 – August 1, 2018

Aquatic and Terrestrial Ecology + Politics of Place + Applied Methods

10-week Semester Equivalent:  May 21 – August 1, 2018

Community Ecology; independent travel; Aquatic and Terrestrial Ecology; and, Politics of Place


3-week Intensive: May 21 – June 11, 2018

Community Ecology: Salmon, People, Place

5 semester or 8 quarter units


This 3-week intensive focuses on the communities that inhabit the heart of the Pacific Coastal Ecoregion. Conceived broadly, the course theme of community ecology launches explorations from the outer coast to the Inside Passage to study interactions at varying scales and across biological, social, biophysical, and cultural boundaries.

The CE course will begin with a 4-7 day backcountry expedition in the Prince of Wales Island archipelago. The remainder of CE will be spent in the forests and rivers of Prince of Wales, with a base camp in Coffman Cove, and wrap up in the town of Wrangell. Classes will be interdisciplinary, conducted in both lecture- and activity-based formats.

Course Descriptions:


Community Ecology: Salmon, People, Place (4 semester or 6 quarter units, 410/510) examines the physical, biological, economic and political frameworks essential to informed stewardship if salmon-producing watersheds, healthy forests, and communities in the Pacific Coastal Ecoregion. Students practice stream, upland forest and community survey and monitoring techniques that contribute to long-term collaborative stewardship work. A community ecology lens adds consideration of organizations and networks on the landscape and in human communities, enhancing students’ knowledge of resiliency and sustainability in the ecoregion.


Applied Methods in Field Research and Education (1 semester or 2 quarter units, 410/510) explores methods for the development and implementation of active teaching and research programs that integrate people, leadership, academics, community, and ecology. Course content will explore non-formal teaching and learning techniques, place-based education, and community interaction in higher education.

6-week Summer Session:  June 20 – August 1, 2018

Aquatic and Terrestrial Ecology + Politics of Place + Applied Methods

9 semester or 14 quarter units


The Core Session expedition includes three upper-division classes taken concurrently, these are ecology, natural resource policy, and applied field research methods.


Course Descriptions:


Aquatic & Terrestrial Ecology of Southeast Alaska (4 semester or 6 quarter units, 410/510). Students develop an understanding of key ecological principals of aquatic and terrestrial systems, from the nearshore intertidal zone to the high alpine. This class also examines the adaptations and relationships of organisms to their environments over time and space.


Politics of Place: Southeast Alaska (4 semester or 6 quarter units, 410/510). Topics include land ownership, public and private land management, conservation strategies, local and regional economies, Alaska Native cultures and communities, and contemporary resource management issues. A focus is placed on the evolution of social and legal structures, and how these structures guide current decision-making.  Inquiry and reason are applied to real-life challenges, and students engage with citizens and policymakers to consider solutions.


Applied Methods in Field Research and Education (1 semester or 2 quarter units, 410/510) explores methods for the development and implementation of active teaching and research programs that integrate people, leadership, academics, community, and ecology. Course content will explore ecological and socio-economic research methods, non-formal teaching and learning techniques, place-based education, and community interaction in higher education.

10-week Semester Equivalent:  May 21 – August 1, 2018

Community Ecology; independent travel; Aquatic and Terrestrial Ecology; and, Politics of Place, Applied Methods

13 semester or 20 quarter units


This program combines our 3-week intensive and our 6-week summer session to offer a full summer in Alaska. From nearshore aquatic habitat monitoring to the impacts of transboundary mining, the Semester Equivalent surveys the complex issues facing North America’s largest temperate rainforest. Lengthy immersion in the backcountry and rural communities from Sea Otter Sound to the Stikine River provides students the opportunity to dig deeper on topics that fit their major or course of study and work closely with faculty and guest lecturers.

Topics covered will include–but aren’t limited to!–Alaska Native studies, climate change, collaborative governance, community development, fisheries, forestry, glaciology, paleontology, public lands management, restoration ecology, sustainable aquaculture, international law and politics, and wildlife conservation.

New Diversity & Justice course, GRDSCH 640

The Graduate School is pleased to announce a new course for the Spring quarter entitled:

“Engaging with Microaggressions & Macroassaults- Equity in Praxis”.

We invite graduate students, faculty, and staff from all disciplines to participate in this interdisciplinary course which seeks to equip participants to critically engage with microaggressions and macroassaults- both the everyday insults and hostilities as well as the structural, large-scale policies and practices that perpetuate the oppression of marginalized populations. Inspired by Paulo Freire’s notion of praxis (the intersection of reflection and action), the course will work to empower participants to address, interrupt, and confront these forces in their personal and professional lives.

Please see the attached flyer for more information.

You may email Saejin Kwak Tanguay (gsdivra@uw.edu) with any questions.

Education Rome – Priority Deadline Feb. 15th

A quick reminder that the new Education Rome program focusing on masculinities, multiculturalism, and educational pipelines (more details below and on flyer attached) has its priority deadline this Thursday, Feb. 15th.

Education Rome


Priority Deadline: February 15th

Program Dates: Aug. 17th – Sept. 7th, 2018

Total Program Fees: Estimated $4,800

Location: UW Rome Center, Italy

Program website: https://studyabroad.washington.edu/index.cfm?FuseAction=Programs.ViewProgram&Program_ID=11734

Spartacus to Ali: Masculinity and Multiculturalism – Comparing Educational Pipeline Development in Italy and the U.S. is a three-week Exploration Seminar based at the UW Rome Center in Italy. By comparing and contrasting the development of both Italian and American education systems, we will explore historical, social, psychological, political, and contemporary factors that have shaped and continue to shape the common trajectories among men in the two countries. A true titan of historical civilizations, Ancient Rome is arguably one of the largest and most influential empires the world has ever known. From gladiatorial training to the passing of the Casati Act and current day reform debates, what formal education has looked like and who has access to it are complicated questions. Answering those questions with respect to common male trajectories requires a rich understanding of historical influences, systems of oppression and how we make sense of masculinity in the context of race and class. Rome provides countless opportunities to explore Italian masculinity and male trajectories through history, art, and current day systems. This course will illuminate the factors that inform our understanding of various outcomes and experiences for Italian men as compared to American men. In addition to education, there will be critical discussions of other facets of Italian society and history such as sports culture, compulsory service, and the criminal justice system along with visits to the Colosseum, museums, Italian schools, and other field trips to broaden our understanding of male trajectories. An emphasis is placed on Italian incarceration as opposite education in examining the spectrum of common societal pipelines. This provides an important point of comparison to the school to prison pipeline in the U.S. as an anchoring point for a richer understanding and discussion of the relationship between education, masculinity, multiculturalism, historical disenfranchisement and systems of oppression.

Spring Quarter Public Policy Undergraduate Courses

WE are excited to let you know that the Evans School of Public Policy & Governance has two undergraduate courses coming up in Spring quarter: PUBPOL 201: Introduction to Public Policy and Governance and PUBPOL 313: Evidence-based Implementation.

Both courses are open to all undergraduate students. A bit more about each:

PUBPOL 201—This introduction to the field of policy analysis, governance, and public service teaches students how to analyze and evaluate policy and actions, as well as how individuals organize for common purposes. Learn how institutional problems are solved for the betterment of society, how policies can be analyzed and measured for impact, and how public policies are designed and implemented in order to respond to complex challenges related to climate change, urban planning, social justice, city planning, and more.

· WHEN: It will meet Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:00-11:30 am.

· WHY: Because you want to change the world!

PUBPOL 313—This new course will explore the multidimensional challenge of turning policy and program intentions into valued results on the ground. To understand why the results of government initiatives so often fall short of expectation—and what might be done to raise the likelihood of policy success—requires an understanding of how public and nonprofit organizations work in practice: through their mission, resources, collaborations, and results measurement.

· WHEN: It will meet Tuesdays from 2:30-5:20 pm.

· WHY: Because you want to change the world!

Azores Island Ecology summer field course 2018

This is a great opportunity for a student looking for an interesting, cost effective summer field science course in a location that is exotic, foreign, and safe. There is the opportunity to study Portuguese language and culture alongside the science,
and I even have a small amount of scholarship funding to help defray costs.​ It would be great to get another student from College of the Environment!

I recently left Woods Hole to move to the Netherlands after working for 23 years at SEA Education Association as a Professor of Oceanography, so I know a number of people at UW. My wife and I (also a biologist and oceanographer) designed a summer field course taught at Univ. of the Azores last summer that went really well so they’ve asked us to teach it again this June.​ Last year we had 8 students from France, Canada, and several US schools including Georgetown, Miami of Ohio, SUNY campuses, and Univ. of Washington (a rising sophomore in the Aquatic and Fisheries Science​ program, and one of the strongest students in my group!). Majors ranged from International business to biology and env.sci., and
the Study in Portugal Network is growing and now has formal affiliations with 15 US universities.​
