Semester in the Wild NOW accepting applications for Fall 2015

The University of Idaho’s Semester in the Wild program is now accepting applications for the 2015 fall semester. The program, open to any undergraduate student, runs from late August through November. Participants will earn 16 upper-division credits while studying river ecology, environmental writing, wilderness and protected area management, environmental history of the West, and outdoor leadership in some of the most compelling and inspiring landscapes in the Rocky Mountains. Students will spend the entire semester off-campus at the University’s Taylor Wilderness Research Station, one of the nation’s most remote research stations.

The Semester in the Wild course will give students an opportunity to:
-Conduct undergraduate research alongside scientists,
-Study rivers and salmon ecosystems in an environment far removed from human impact,
-Read and write about great literature and history of the American West,
-Learn why we have our current wilderness management programs and how such programs evolve.
