Description

Informed by experiential education approaches, students will complete a weekend backpacking trip with instructors as part of the overall course and use reflections from these experiences, in conjunction with coursework on human-nature relationships, to critically analyse and develop a personal land ethic. The field trip explores the concept of wilderness in land ethics through a direct experience of actual wilderness. The course has a focus on bi-culturally competent and globally connected understandings of the relationships between humans and nature.
