Are you interested in taking a CU Boulder course abroad this summer? Then consider a CU Education Abroad Global Seminar.

These short-term programs are taught and directed by CU Boulder faculty members. They last between two and six weeks and provide a small-group experience that allows students to build strong connections with faculty and peers. Education Abroad offers more than 40 of these options, but check out a few of these new options for summer 2021.

Ecuador – Expeditions & Adventure

LAMS 3000: Travel, Science & Adventure
3 credits, 3 weeks

Learn about the scientific expeditions of Darwin, La Condamine and Humboldt from a cultural perspective. Several of the most important scientific discoveries happened in Ecuador: the actual shape of the Earth was measured near Quito, the evidence of natural selection was found in the Galapagos Islands, & environmentalism was first inspired in Andean volcanoes. These expeditions changed global knowledge on astronomy, geography, and biology, and you will get to visit the Ecuadorian sites – including the Galapagos Islands!
