Explore the intersection of Environmental Ethics, Policy, and Science by sailboat in summer 2021
Study the interface of environmental ethics, policy, law, and science in the settings of national parks in the coastal and marine environment of the islands between Seattle, Washington and Vancouver, BC, Canada. As the class explores the marine and coastal environment of this area, students will engage in hands-on projects and learn the skills of good seamanship while traveling aboard a chartered sailboat. Daily excursions will be made by paddle-board, kayaks, and by shuttle into the city of Victoria, BC.
The program runs from July 30 to August 13, 2021. The application deadline is February 15, 2020. For more information, please email the program’s faculty contact, Jeffrey Downard, or NAU’s study abroad advisor, Joseph Miller.
