SFS is excited to announce the launch of a new program in Patagonia for Fall 2019!
The SFS Center for Climate Studies will be based in the iconic Patagonia region of southern Chile and will offer a Coastal Climate Change in Patagonia program during the fall and spring semesters. SFS students will take field excursions to some of the world’s most massive glaciers, visit the renowned Torres del Paine National Park, explore the rich biodiversity of the Straight of Magellan and fjords, glimpse the gaucho and baqueano way of life, as well as visit neighboring Argentina. There is no shortage of stunning landscapes and environmental challenges to examine in this one of a kind region.
This program will follow the SFS model offering 4 core courses plus the Directed Research course, totaling 18 credit hours.
- Language, Culture, and Society of Chile (2 credits)
- Patagonian Ecology (4 credits)
- Earth Systems and Climate Science (4 credits)
