This program will be the only one of its kind to introduce students to the unique environment of Antarctica. Students will learn to identify and describe the biophysical processes sustaining Antarctic ecosystems, the implications of altering those components, and relevant conservation issues. Students will be expected to demonstrate the use of logic and reasoning to synthesize information and arrive at defensible conclusions and to identify biases and assumptions in their own work and the work of others. Students will experience the once in a lifetime opportunity of exploring this unique and remote polar ecosystem.
