Sustainability Study Aborad Program

Summer 2012 is your chance to travel abroad on one of Michigan State’s study abroad programs with a sustainability focus. This program provides students with first-hand insights experience with the connections between society and ecology through field work.


There is an information meeting tomorrow, and more information below about this program.


Information Meeting Tuesday, Feb. 7,

6-7 p.m., 103 Farrell Hall


The Sustainable Food, Environment, and Social Systems program is being sponsored by the Colleges of Agriculture and Natural Resources, Engineering, and Social Science (July 16 through August 11).  This 4 week field study program involves daily visits to nature preserves, wilderness areas, farms, and cultural sites and travels to several regions of the Australian continent: Sydney, Adelaide, and Far North Queensland, which includes Cairns, Townsville, and the Tablelands region. Some notable visits will include Sydney Olympic Park, Barossa Valley winery region, the Great Barrier Reef, Magnetic Island, and several wet- tropical rainforests.


You can earn up to 7 semester credits that can be used to fulfill university requirements (ISB 202, ISS 310), as well as other credits that might fulfill major requirements or electives (ACR 202, ESA 480, ANR 475, BE 475).  This program is also designed to support the MSU Sustainability Specialization course requirements.


This program offers on-line and face-to-face pre-departure opportunities that will help students get to know each other and learn about Australia before they depart.
