In Spring 2019, MENV will offer an experiential course in Chamonix, France. Taught in partnership with the Center for Research on Altitude Ecosystems, the course will address alpine ecosystem science issues, as well as the policy and management challenges presented by a region straddled by three nations. MENV’s experiential field courses provide place-based experiences that help to prepare students to understand, work in, and be prepared for a variety of cultural contexts. Chamonix sits at the base of Mont Blanc, Europe’s highest mountain which tops out at 15,781 feet.
This is a 3-credit hour course, and will satisfy an MENV elective. Participation in this program will require an additional program fee. More information to come.
