This summer, UA students can learn, explore, beat the heat, and earn credits at Prescott College.
During the Summer Program, which starts July 8 and ends Aug. 7, 2019, students will take three courses, earn seven credits, and have a fantastic experience with UA teachers and fellow students. The program is available to all UA students.
The three courses in the program are:
- GEOG 170A1: Earth's Environment: Introduction to Physical Geography
- AIS 220: Contemporary American Indian Issues
- GEOG 397D: Field Study in Geography Workshop
Students will engage in fieldwork tied to the classes and take excursions to nearby points of interest, including the Grand Canyon, archaeological sites, Native American reservations, and northern Arizona's incomparable national forests. Each weekend includes field course excursions of varying lengths.
