What Makes Us Unique

school of environmental studies

Field Studies

Field Studies are one great example of how SES exists as a school beyond its walls. Field studies are academic excursions around the planet intended to immerse students in new climates, cultures and environmental issues. They are an authentic way to look at how people around the world connect and depend on their many and varied environments. In the past we have traveled to dozens of places including Iceland, South Africa, Costa Rica, the Superior Hiking Trail, and the BWCAW to experience amazing wildlife, incredible history, and diverse cultures. We invite you to look at some of our current academic excursions.

Intensive Theme Courses

Intensive Theme classes offer students an opportunity to try something new or dive deeper into a subject or topic. These courses often allow students an opportunity to explore the areas of study in a variety of settings with field trips both on and off school grounds. Some courses are co-taught with Minnesota Zoo staff members and many incorporate outside experts to add real world expertise.
