Wildlands Studies offers students real-world science experience through a variety of academically rigorous, accredited field courses that add life, dimension, and meaning to what they’ve learned in brick and mortar classrooms.
Wildlands Studies accepts new program proposals from May through August each year. We advertise for new proposals in the Chronicle of Higher Education and specific environmental education websites. Upon inquiry we will email our formal Program Proposal Guidelines. Proposals are reviewed when received, with final decisions for the following year determined by September 1. Our program calendar is planned twelve to eighteen months in advance and instructors must be able to commit to a program up to eighteen months out with the aim to have the program offered repeatedly.
