Coursework covers traditional geoscience field skill development (geologic history deduction, structural geology, stratigraphy, and mapping) and geohazard analysis and solutions in the context of Nepali society. Students develop Earth science field skills as applied to understanding both the geological history and ongoing interactions between humans and Earth systems in the Himalaya. When the academic calendar allows, a carefully selected cohort of geology students from Nepal’s premier university—Tribhuvan University—participates in the Field Science Methods course and the Geohazards in the Himalaya course as classmates. This unique opportunity to engage in geoscience studies in the Himalaya with Nepali students deepens program learning on every level.
The following syllabi are representative of this program. Because courses develop and change over time to take advantage of dynamic learning opportunities, actual course content will vary from term to term. The syllabi can be useful for students, faculty, and study abroad offices in assessing credit transfer. Read more about credit transfer.
