Global Issues in Natural Resources

This course is designed to support the International Field Experience (IFE) scheduled for the same semester. It provides students with important global context for issues examined during the IFE, while also encouraging students to consider the challenges and rewards of working in a different culture. During the weeks prior to departure, students work online to complete a series of assignments and get to know the other members of their IFE team. Students will come together online again following completion of their field work to wrap-up and reflect on their experiences. Specific readings and assignments vary each semester according to the IFE destination and the lead IFE faculty.
