GS 375 - Ecuador Travel Study: Civic Engagement with Peoples and the Environment


(3 or 6 S.H.)

This field experience course offers students opportunities to engage civically in collaborative projects with rural communities in NW Ecuador as they gain knowledge about Andean and cloud forest geographies, bio-cultural diversities, political ecology and resource use, and trans-national collaborations. Students visit 3 to 4 eco-lodges, while learning about sustainable development and participatory democracy. Variable credits for this course (3 or 6 S.H.) are dependent upon whether the course is taken for winter break or summer session and the amount of time spent in Ecuador Travel Study (from 11 days in winter to 20 days in summer). In both versions of the course, students are required to meet the competencies outlined in the class proposal, although for the longer course students will have developed capacities for in-depth explanations of key concepts with more examples. Meets GOAL 9 and GOAL 10. Prerequisite: ENG 111 - College Reading and Writing . Grade or P/NC. Offered annually or when demand warrants.
