BIO 1170 - Exploring Habitats through Art and Ecology

4 cr
This course combines art and ecology in the exploration of a unique habitat by traveling and spending a week immersed in the study of plants, animals, and culture of a selected region. The habitat selected may change depending on the offering but may include coral reefs, rainforests, or deserts. Students become naturalists and explore the species and interactions within various ecosystems. By sketching and painting their observations, students develop a sense of the scientific complexities that create these beautiful ecosystems and express the marvels of nature through journals, artwork, and research projects. Students also foster their ability to observe, inquire, and learn in these natural surroundings.
Fee variable, approximately $1,700.
