Geography and Environmental Systems

Geographers and environmental scientists place a high value on the experience of traveling, living and doing research and fieldwork abroad. By studying overseas, students gain a first-hand understanding of the global world and environment. Learn about Ecuador’s ecology and conservation efforts. Explore Australia’s vast geography, from its snowy mountains to its tropical waters. Studying abroad will expand your world and change your life.
