Adventures in Natural History – Bio 131
Semester Long Off Campus Programs
The program starts with a four-week study and orientation session in Chennai and a rural setting that exposes students to India and Indian life. These class sessions and field trips introduce India’s history, philosophy, religion, music, customs and current politics, as well as the practical matters of getting around and getting along in India.
The program fulfills two biology electives, MCS-G and WRI requirements. Those students wanting Environmental Studies experiential or elective credit must request permission from the Chair of Environmental Studies in writing.
The human history is no less fascinating. The aboriginal Australians have inhabited the countryside for the past 60,000 – 100,000 years and represent the oldest continuous culture still surviving in the world today. Students learn how their unique adaptations to a mostly harsh environment show remarkable innovation. They also study how the recent European invasion has significantly altered their lifestyle as well as affecting many environmental parameters. Australia, like all other continents on our planet, has serious environmental policy issues to face.
This site covers all the information you will need to know about the Environmental Science in Australia Program. It includes the official information from the booklet provided by the Office for International and Off-Campus Studies and a host of photographs from previous trips.
