Environmental Studies 2014 Jan-Term

Kenai Peninsula, Alaska

June 13-29 2014

Nine Manchester University students traveled to Alaska and traveled along the Kenai Peninsula from June 13th-29th as part of a Field Ecology course. The trip included stops in Anchourage,Steward,Sterrling and Homer. Students hiked, climbed mountains, swam in glacier water, rocked climbed, explored a moose research center, got a behind the scene tour of the Sea Life Rehab Center in Seward and enjoyed a flowplane ride for an up close view of Grizzly, Black bears and their cubs.

 


After Manchester University, what happens to our graduates.....

 

Melissa Paar (2014 Graduate) and Tony DeMarco went to Chicago last week for auditor training under the Water Benefit Standard through the Gold Standard Foundation. It is a brand new mechanism to fund sustainable water projects around the globe. The idea around the concept is that stakeholders in a particular region (governments, NGOs or corporations) will invest in projects that conserve, preserve and sustainably develop water through a particular region. The Gold Standard is the organization that designed the program and will be the "governing" body. It is similar to the carbon market in EU where they sell carbon credits, but there are some substantial differences between the carbon and water programs.

The environmental studies program at Manchester, established in 1971, is among the oldest ES programs in the country. The main goals of the program are to educate students about the state of the local and global environment, and to prepare majors to fill vital roles in environmental science, education, public policy, and other related fields. 

Through research and special study opportunities on and off campus, students gain valuable experience in the lab and in the field. For environmental studies majors at Manchester, "getting your feet wet" may mean just that! You may find yourself wading in a creek researching fish habitats or standing in the ocean in the Bahamas studying sand dollars. Or maybe you'll find yourself in a forest, surveying bird populations and vegetation.

 

 
 

 

Mission:

  • To provide students experiential learning opportunities and rigorous academics rooted in natural sciences, political sciences, economics, and philosophy to better understand the human endeavor in the context of responsible environmental stewardship.
