Alaska Wrangell Mountains Summer Field Studies Program
Wednesday, January 30th at 1:00pm
The Alaska Field Studies Program is seven weeks next summer, interdisciplinary with focus on ecosystems, geology, climate change, people & protected areas, dynamic landscapes, and outdoor leadership. Based at our institute in McCarthy at the toe of the Kennicott Glacier, the program includes wilderness travel with faculty in Wrangell-St. Elias National Park. A collaboration between The Wrangell Mountains Center and The Evergreen State College, it grants 16 quarter/10 semester units of upper division undergraduate credit. Variations of the program have been running more than thirty years, with many students completing capstone projects for their majors in geology, ecology, land management and other fields.
Here is a unique Alaska field studies opportunity for undergraduate students looking for rigorous academics within a wilderness immersion experience.
