Three courses, for a total of 9 credits, provide formal training. Field trips and transdisciplinary approaches are structuring elements of these courses.
In addition, hands-on experience in an internship setting is gained through the "Research in Panama" course (ENVR 451, 6 credits), an independent studies project organized around multidisciplinary environmental issues. The nature of these projects centres on practical environmental problems/questions important for Panama. Students form teams that work with Panamanian institutions (NGO, governmental or research).
Please note that the courses differ slightly from year to year.
Courses offered each year (9 credits)
Courses offered in alternate years (6 credits)
