Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2015-2016.

This senior seminar course is for students who have developed significant international focuses to their undergraduate programs, which include relevant overseas experience(s). Supported by lectures and discussions, students will work in small groups to examine real-world case studies of on-going ecoagriculture and conservation projects in Africa, Latin America, Asia, and the United States using two new Internet-based learning systems (www.conservationbridge.org). Student teams will address complex interdisciplinary questions of sustainability by working collaboratively with an identified practitioner who is directly involved in the case study project being examined. This will ensure that classroom activities address actual constraints and problems being faced by local people associated with each case. Out-of-class work is expected and a final written team report and a class presentation are required. Students also will be expected to present a seminar discussing their past international experience(s).

When Offered Spring.
