Expanding your classroom – a global experience

"This was a game changing experience! Comparing resource management in BC to what we saw in Costa Rica was a serious eye-opener for me! This trip gave me a renewed appreciation for our policies and management regimes in Prince George, while at the same time inspiring me to think in a more global context when it comes to planning my own career in natural resource management." Student Testimonial, 2013.

We are proud to offer our students a unique opportunity to participate in an intercultural travel experience. Spending three weeks away from home—in a safe and yet challenging travel program—our students are immersed in new cultures, politics and geography. Earning academic credit while broadening their consciousness, students gain valuable international field experience and life skills that will prepare them for work in a globally competitive market. Take your learning beyond the pages of a textbook and join as we explore new international destinations.

We are excited to announce that our upcoming field school will take students to visit the forests and communities of Ecuador! Past trips have included Costa Rica and China. Flip through our travel albums for a visual overview of our program (e.g. visiting the Great Wall of China and river rafting in Costa Rica).

Financial assistance for this course is available.
