Details:

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.

Students enrolled in the Semester Equivalent will stack the 3-week intensive and the 6-week summer session to build your 10-week program. During the week between, you may travel independently or enjoy downtime in Wrangell. Students enroll in up to 20 quarter units in community ecology, applied methods in field research and education, aquatic and terrestrial ecology, and politics of place.

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.

Rolling admissions will start this Friday and may close before the March 1st deadline if the program reaches capacity. Spots are already looking limited.

If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to let me know.

Tory Brundage, M.Ed.

Program Coordinator

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.

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.​

SFS Semester Program Costs for 2018-2019

The School For Field Studies

SFS Program Costs and Updates for 2018-2019

The School for Field Studies is thrilled to announce that there will be no increases to semester program costs for the coming academic year, and select programs will even see reductions. Our planet faces serious environmental threats and these must be confronted by a large and diverse group of environmental leaders. We hope that program cost is never a barrier to this mission.

We are also excited for the return of our TURKS AND CAICOS PROGRAM this summer and are grateful for the support the study abroad community has provided SFS, our TCI staff, and the people of South Caicos. The renewal of TCI programming offers a chance to reaffirm our purpose. SFS will continue to practice science, study the environment, and engage with the world – no matter the headwinds. Our vision of a sustainable future is unchanged, but the pursuit of this goal, we believe, has never been more important.

We remain committed to making SFS a reality for your students, no matter their means. We can never do it alone. For this reason, and so many others, we thank you for your partnership and support.

New Exploration Seminar to Greenland and Denmark

The Exploration Seminar to Greenland and Denmark from 15 August – 10 September 2018 is officially accepting applications!

The course focus is based on physical science, but the destinations and experiences will be rich in exposure and education in culture, history, and policy. The academic motivation is for students to understand how the Greenland Ice Sheet is changing due to climate change, how this affects people in Greenland and around the world, and how Denmark
is leading scientific efforts to understand these changes and political efforts to mitigate these changes. Since no roads connect towns and cities in Greenland, we will go by plane and ferry to locations that will span smaller towns, stunning natural environments, and the country’s capitol city. We will hike on the Greenland ice sheet, tour the iceberg-choked fjords, and learn from Copenhagen how it is one of the world’s most desirable places to live and one of the most sustainable cities.

Here are the details:
