UF in North Queensland, Australia – Sustaining Humans and their Environment

This four-week experiential program uses the theme of sustainable development to explore the relationship between people and their natural environment. North Queensland boasts some of the most diverse and remarkable natural resources in the southern hemisphere. Known as the Sunshine State, Queensland is home to lush rainforests, Outback scrub and desert, and the spectacular marine diversity of the Great Barrier Reef. The program also includes time in Sydney, Australia’s largest city.

Fiji Sustainability

UF in Fiji – Sustaining Humans and their Environment

This 12-day experiential program uses the theme of sustainable development to explore the relationship between people and the natural environment. We examine the complex relationships between Fijian cultural practices, environmental conservation, and eco-tourism. Despite several centuries of outside contact and a unique ethnic mix, traditional Fijian values and customs still flourish and have a profound influence on the connection between people and the land. Fiji is a low-cost layover on the return flight to the U.S. and by combining Fiji with Australia, you earn 9 credits.

Dates (in country): June 10 – 19, 2018 Credits: 3 credits (LEI 4955/6931) Program fee: TBA
Application Deadline: March 1, 2018

 

UF works in partnership with AUIP to provide these programs in the South Pacific. The programs are led by a UF faculty member and students earn UF credit.
