Wildlands Studies programs occur entirely in the field.
Although not taught in a classroom, there are definite academic expectations: participation in discussions and activities, readings, exams, projects and presentations. There will also undoubtedly be long days, possible inclement weather, logistical challenges, and physically demanding conditions. This comes as well with unsurpassed personal rewards. You will get the most out of the experience if you bring along flexibility, ample patience, a sense of humor, self-motivation, and perhaps most importantly, the desire to work as a team towards a common goal.
