W&C is an inspiring, demanding 2-semester program. Each year, a small group of students from around the country are immersed in wildland study-- interactions between people and the land. W&C combines strengths of classroom and field learning, interactive classes, dedicated faculty, and applied learning via internships. Coursework is interdisciplinary drawing from art, biology, literature, policy, economics and Native American Studies. W&C offers students opportunity to explore contemporary conservation debates, make connections between disciplines and learn to cooperate to make positive change. W&C students receive a Wilderness Studies minor to complement any major. Applications are due February 15 for early admission, April 1 for general admission.
