Environmental Studies students are strongly encouraged, but not required, to participate in global study or another off-campus programs. These opportunities allow students to experience different countries, regions, cultures and perspectives, foster a deeper understanding of the forces that drive environmental changes, and, if desired, carry out research. Students can choose from Dickinson Programs in places like England, Spain, Italy, Cameroon, China, France, Ecuador, Argentina, New Zealand, Australia, Russia or partner programs in Brazil, Costa Rica, Bhutan, Cambodia, Denmark, India, Israel, Morocco, South African, Tanzania, Senegal and Jordan, to name a few.
Students can also elect to take part in a research Semester in Environmental Science at the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, Massachusetts, join the Washington Center in Washington DC, or pursue an exchange with an Eco-League school. Other students elect to participate in a Mosaic or Globally-Integrated Course.
The opportunities are endless and exciting! For information see your academic adviser or see the Center for Global Study and Engagement.
How to get credit for study abroad courses.
- Many of the study abroad courses have been reviewed and are posted on our hallway bulletin board in Kaufman Hall.
- If the course is not on the list, the student should provide a copy of the course syllabus to their academic advisor.
- The advisor will forward the course syllabus to the department chair and departmental ADC to be considered at an upcoming department meeting.
- The course syllabus will be reviewed by the faculty and approved for a specific course designation.
- Once approved the course will be posted to the Kaufman Hall bulletin board for future reference.
