Cultural Immersion in Geography + Anthropology

Living what you learn

Part of the reason you chose to study geography or anthropology is because you love learning about different cultures.

Take what you learn from our expert professors and experience it firsthand. Your travels will change your perspective of the world and stay with you for the rest of your life.

The learning doesn’t just stop in the classroom; our Geography Field Seminar courses offer students the opportunity to travel to locations around the globe. In this course, I traveled to Oregon where we met an amazing couple who owned a biodynamic vineyard, a highly sustainable way of cultivating winegrapes. Here, I could truly understand what it means for people to invest and care for their land. On top of that, our class gained valuable information about microclimates and sustainable land practices.
