Integrated Science

Imagine learning about the delicate marine ecosystems of coral reefs while living on the coast of Australia, taking classes about the ecology of the rainforest and its exotic inhabitants in Costa Rica, or conducting field work in the Sahara or a national park in Kenya. Study abroad opens up opportunities around the world for Integrated Science students to get a firsthand look at ecosystems drastically different than our own as well as access to global natural resource management styles, which will render the full perspective on better teaching practices.
