Field Trip Courses

We frequently offer courses that involve extensive one- to two-week field trips. These give students a more concentrated and extensive experience of working together and conducting their own field investigations in these areas. These are some of our recent trips:

  • Big Bend National Park: paleontology, sedimentary and volcanic features (John Fronimos, Jeff Walker, Jill Schneiderman)
  • Germany: renewable energy (Mary Ann Cunningham and Jenny Magnes)
  • Iceland: volcanic landscapes, conservation, and biodiversity (Kirsten Menking, Mark Schlessman, Jeff Walker)
  • California: volcanoes, geomorphology, and Death Valley (Jeff Walker and Kirsten Menking)
  • China: environment, climate change, and economic geography (Yu Zhou and Fubing Su)
  • Cuba: After the Revolution (Brian Godfrey with Leslie Offutt and Sarah Perlman)
  • The U.S.-Mexico border: political geography and human rights (Joe Nevins)
  • New York City: sustainability and climate planning (Mary Ann Cunningham)
  • New Orleans and coastal Louisiana: land loss and urban growth in the path of hurricanes (Kirsten Menking and Mary Ann Cunningham)
  • The Adirondack Mountains: natural resource conservation (Mary Ann Cunningham)
  • Brazil: urban and social geography (Brian Godfrey)
  • Water in the Southwest: resources, drought, and policy (Jeff Walker and Peter Stillman)

New courses and topics come along every year or two, so check course listings for upcoming field trip courses.
