Field Courses

While studying in an outdoor setting you will work closely with your fellow classmates and professors and have the opportunity to apply your knowledge to the real-world.
 

The core course EVSC 305-3 - Methods in Environmental Science, introduces students to lab and field methods used in the study of Environmental Science.

These other Biology, Earth Sciences, Geography, and Resource and Environmental Management courses in the program also have a field component: collecting samples, field trips (day/overnight), walks, etc.:
