GEOG 493 Sustainability Issues Across the Americas

Credits: 6 credits

When offered: Maymester

A service learning experience based on an interdisciplinary team-based, problem-solving, project-driven approach to sustainability issues. Investigate the human health and happiness, environmental, and economic dimensions of critical issues such as water resources, gold mining, sustainable development, biodiversity, ecotourism, and human migrations.  Our itinerary allows us to engage with these issues by traveling the newly completed InterOceanic highway from the high Andes into the global hotspot of biodiversity in the tropical rainforest of the Amazon Basin. The road presents an unprecedented opportunity to assess the impact of a significant development project on Peruvian livelihoods.
