RSENR Travel Courses and Field Studies

The Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources relies heavily on Vermont’s natural landscapes – its mountains, lakes, fields, and forests - to provide students hands-on experience studying ecology and ecosystem processes. In addition, RSENR offers a variety of intensive field courses during vacation breaks and summer session that provide students special opportunities to study outside of Vermont. Past offerings have included study of the wildlife of Florida or south Texas, arid ecosystems and water resource issues in Israel, environmental research in the Chesapeake Bay region, ecotourism and environmental interpretation in Costa Rica or Sub-Saharan Africa, regional examples of sustainable forest management and practices and the aquatic ecology of large lakes from the deck of the Melosira, UVM’s research vessel.
