Northern Europe Sustainability Field School 2015

Geography 477 at Bridge Glacier, September 2015

Members of the GEOG 453 Field course paddle their way up a river within an ancient temperate rainforest valley. Heiltsuk/Wuikinuxv Territories, coastal BC.

Geography field study courses take students to the edge of glaciers, face-to-face with whales, and knee deep in mudflats. In addition to applying their classroom and textbook knowledge, students also hone their research skills through a major independent field-based project.

Many students go on to present their field studies projects at local and regional conferences, and even have them published in journals. Students who have taken these field courses find them to be an exciting, fun, and valuable capstone or culmination to their undergraduate career.

New field school information is posted when it is made available. Please contact geoginfo@uvic.ca if you are interested or have any questions.
