WHAT IS A UT TRAVEL COURSE?
One of the best—and easiest—ways you can internationalize your education at The University of Tampa is by taking one of the university’s travel courses. Here’s how it works: You enroll in an on-campus course with a travel component. After the on-campus portion, during the summer, spring break or winter intersession, you and your classmates take off, all while earning UT academic credit.
HOW TO APPLY?
Visit the Office of International Programs to discuss this course with an education abroad advisor and apply online at ut.studioabroad.com. Please note: graduating seniors may enroll in this course; however, degrees and diplomas will be delayed until the end of the semester during which the grade is submitted, usually the August degree conferral date.
This course is intended for students interested in the natural history, biology, and ecology of the tropics, the most biologically diverse regions of the world. Students will study evolutionary, biological, and ecological principles of tropical ecosystems and the natural history of the organisms that live there. We will examine conservation programs, sustainable development practices, and the widespread impact of this region of the globe. The course culminates in a two-week long experience in Queensland, Australia, where students will visit pristine World Heritage ranked tropical rain forests, aboriginal villages, coastal ecosystems, and snorkel or SCUBA dive on the Great Barrier Reef. In the field, students will not only literally immerse themselves in tropical ecosystems, they will directly observe tropical species of ecological and economic importance, and will gain insight into career opportunities in tropical conservation, sustainable agriculture, and even medicine. Pre-requisites include the Biology Lower Core, and permission of the instructor. Open to non-Honors students.
