University of Pittsburgh-Johnstown


3 credit course, offered every other summer. 

Immerse a student in a regional experience as a two week field course. This course will enable students to see critically and to interpret a cultural landscape through the perspective of culture and history, sustainability, ecology and natural environment, geology, and geography. Using a combination of structured field studies, cultural specific readings, primary and secondary data, and standard geographic field techniques this course strives to develop a deeper affective and cognitive understanding of a specified geographic region. This course is designed to offer students the opportunity to participate in a travel experience that is directly linked to their coursework and academic concentration and to broaden understanding of social and environmental processes through hands-on-site visits to several national and global parks, cities, towns, cultural centers, nature preserves, museums, etc. Course can be taken more than once as study sites will change.
