Students can take advantage of learning abroad opportunities (which also fulfill the “Environmental Experiences” component of the ENVR major) in three ways:
Environmentally-focused trips during the January or Summer I term. Opportunities include yearly trips to India, Japan and Honduras; when possible, SU also offers trips to Iceland, Brazil and Puerto Rico. All trips are led by SU faculty. Here are some examples:
University-affiliated semester abroad programs in Ecuador, Estonia and China (with other offerings being developed). For the same cost as a semester at SU and taking all SU-approved courses, students can focus upon environmental courses to some extent. Possibilities are the same as for option 1, above (thus far ENVR students have only done Ecuador).
An outside-of-SU study abroad program in the summer or for a semester.
ENVR students have gone to Australia, New Zealand, Spain, and Costa Rica. For further information please visit:
