ENST 309 - Australian Environmental Issues (Study Group)

Led by the faculty director of Colgate’s study abroad program to the University of Wollongong, offered each fall semester by the program in Environmental Studies and the Department of Geography. Australia’s unique characteristics and history provide a rich setting for the interdisciplinary study of topics in environmental studies and geography. Through class lectures and discussion, critical reading, independent research papers, and field trips, students consider a broad range of historical and contemporary human-environment relationships. A series of field excursions planned and led by the faculty director allow students to experience Australia’s rich and diverse flora and fauna, its environmental and cultural heritage, and illustrate environmental policy challenges for 21st-century Australia.
