As an environmental studies major, you might take a field course in the Boundary Waters of northern Minnesota studying the arts, humanities, or social sciences.

Learn without boundaries

In this field term, you’ll study the relationships of the environment to living things, literature, or politics while living off the grid. Courses work independently but come to together for shared readings and discussions, all under days of clear blue sky (weather providing) and nights filled with stars or the northern lights. 

Course highlights

  • Letting the pristine north woods guide your study of wilderness
  • Wilderness canoe camping trips 
  • Learning science from your professor but learning about wilderness writers from your peers (or vice versa)
  • Multi-day writing or data collection projects in and around Low Lake
