Setting Description:
Following the alternative schedule for spring, the 2nd component involves study abroad. The students and faculty (one from USF and one from PSU) will travel to the UK where their learning from the spring semester will be translated into real world examples. Students will visit field locations in England and Wales where they will develop skills in observing, documenting, evaluating, and analyzing, landforms and processes. Examples from the UK, will be used to form comparisons and contrasts with that of US. Students will develop an appreciation of changing human interaction with and impact upon the environment. The benefits of the program will be the real world application to the material studied in spring. Students will gain an understanding of some of the critical issues in landscape use and management, and, be able to compare UK, EU and US policy differences. At the same time the students will develop research experience, skills of observing, describing and analysing the landforms, a
