Discover study abroad options with Wildlands Studies, a UO sponsored organization providing field project programs that offer hands-on experience with current environmental and cultural issues. Small project teams led by field study specialists, work together to seek solutions for critical issues facing these environments today. Students not only have the opportunity to gain extensive familiarity with the specific location studied, but to gain broadly applicable skills and knowledge of ecological, geological and social sciences that can be applied in their own or other communities.
Project sites include: Chile, Ecuador, Australia, Thailand, South Africa, Belize, New Zealand, Peru, Nepal, Iceland, and Cuba. These programs are ideal for Environmental Studies and Environmental Science students.
These projects are in generally remote locations and include strenuous hiking and backpacking. Applicants are urged to read the specific program descriptions thoroughly, to consider their own experience and circumstance, and to meet with a GEO advisor. Also see the Wildlands FAQ’s.
