SOC 3850 Sustainable Australia: Env/agri/culture

4 hours


This course is a three-week study tour of selected parts of Australia during the winter break (summer in Australia). Students will have broad first-hand exposure to a wide variety of field sites (environmental, cultural and agricultural) and most of the "instruction" will be provided by various stakeholders on site and under the supervision of accompanying faculty. The experience is offered as a collaboration between Nebraska Wesleyan University and the University of Nebraska, but the course proper is a NWU course. The underlying theme for the course is consideration of what sustainability looks like and how it is achieved in culturally relevant ways. Prerequisite: Permission of the instructor.
