Is This Program For You?

It’s a good fit if you study:

  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • Environmental Science
  • Geology

I can’t help but wonder what it will be like to tell my grandchildren one day about my study tour experiences… that such a crucial part of our global landscapes will just be gone. Seeing these gigantic chunks of ice floating away into the ocean was both breathtaking and emotional… and I can now better fathom the impact that society is having on our environment.
