Program Overview

Program Description:
Avoid winter in the U.S. and enjoy the South Pacific summer in Australia, Fiji, Hawaii, and New Zealand. Our Spring Semester program is an integrated mega course in Humans and the Environment that provides credits in anthropology, ecology, human geography, and international affairs (with optional courses in natural resources and physical education). We apply an experiential education approach where you are in the field exploring what you have learned in the classroom through the cases of the Big Island of Hawaii, the South and North islands of New Zealand, the Fijian islands, and Sydney and Queensland in Australia. By participating in this program you can also save money by not paying rent for the Spring Semester and having a longer summer to work/study until Fall Semester begins.
