United States: Great Smoky Mountains National Park
Live and study for a week inside the Great Smoky Mountains National Park (GSMNP) at the end of the Summer and just before the Fall Semester begins. This experiential field-based program is appropriate for students of all disciplines and for anyone with an interest in the natural and cultural history of the Southern Appalachia. More specifically, the course will expose students to a variety of on-going and innovative programs, using hands-on, practical experiences, to explore the scope of human – environment relationships in the most visited national park in the country. The Park is our outdoor classroom and there will be a number of guided hikes, including the high country and cultural trips (including Cades Cove), during the week. For more information about our accommodations and where we stay in the Park, check out Great Smoky Mountains Institute at Tremont.
The program is open to all students from UGA and from other institutions, and no prior knowledge is assumed.
