BIOL 388/ENVR 388 Comparative Sustainability - Nicaragua Study Abroad course will be offered by Dr. Hannam Summer 2015. For additional information, please contact Dr. Kristina Hannam directly.

This three-credit, hybrid online-short term study abroad course will focus on sustainability issues both global and local.  The course will begin in May 2015 with one week of online coursework covering sustainability issues and background information about Nicaragua.  Two weeks studying abroad in Nicaragua will be spent traveling to 3 different locations to understand the environmental and sustainability issues there.  Upon return to the United States, a week of online wrap-up coursework and assignments will allow students to evaluate the what they learned abroad and compare and contrast problems and solutions in the developing world with those in the U.S.  This course will provide an opportunity for students to understand the sustainability problems and potential solutions of one place in the developing world, Nicaragua  - a very different place from their daily experience in the U.S.  Through readings, activities and interactions with people in Nicaragua, students will grasp the sustainability issues being tackled by the local people and reflect on the similarities, differences and connections to sustainability issues in the United States. HIghlights include:  Participation in a reforestation project in Masaya National Park to learn about protected areas, Working on a small-scale solar or biogas installation project to learn about climate change/energy/poverty issues, visiting several protected areas in dry tropical forest, globally rare Central American pine forest, and cloud forest sites to learn about biodiversity and ecotourism, and visiting small-holder coffee and pineapple farms to learn about agriculture and environment interactions. 

If you have any concerns or require information prior to attending an information session, please contact Dr. Hannam directly.
