Grand Canyon Semester

Approaching Nankoweap 200

The Grand Canyon Semester offers a life-changing learning experience in the high mountains of northern Arizona and the deep canyon country of the Colorado Plateau. Students with a wide variety of interests and passions come from across the United States and around the world to join faculty in the natural sciences, social sciences, arts, and humanities to investigate how humans impact, manage, interact with, and value the natural world. On backcountry field trips, in classrooms and art galleries, around campfires, in traditional hogans, and exploring the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon, we confront key environmental and social challenges in these diverse natural and cultural landscapes.
