"Wilderness and Civilization has done more to equip me for “real world” conservation than any regular class could have. I have learned more about myself, my community, and the land around me in one year than I had previously in my lifetime.”
Wilderness and Civilization is an inspiring and demanding campus- and field-based academic program. Each year, a small group of students from around the country explore the human-nature relationship and wilderness issues in this semester-plus program. Coursework is interdisciplinary, and the program combines the strengths of classroom and field learning, small class size, dedicated faculty, and internship experience. more>>
