  • ES 395: Yellowstone Field Studies Course

Applications are open for the ES Field Studies course to Yellowstone in May interim. Applications that are received by October 7 will get first priority. For more information and to apply, click here


Travel to Germany with UWO students to participate in an innovative academy run in collaboration with the Viessmann Corporation, one of UW Oshkosh's partners in sustainability. We can make this course count as an ES elective, as well. The trip is subsidized by the Viessmann group, and so is one of the most affordable study abroad options around.



Think outside the classroom.

Tuesday, October 17th | Sage Hall, Rm. 4232 | 4:00-5:00PM

The Wild Rockies Field Institute is an off-campus study opportunity. Our courses take place here in the “Wild Rockies” of Montana and Canada as well as down in the canyon country of the American Southwest; they combine rigorous academic inquiry with cultural immersion and extended backcountry expeditions (backpacking, boating, & bike touring).  Every year, a number of MSU students come out on WRFI courses and students join us from colleges and universities across North America and from a wide variety of majors.  We currently offer courses in Environmental Studies, Natural Resources & Science Management, Native American Studies, Geography, and Philosophy.  WRFI’s small group size and interdisciplinary curriculum offer students an exceptional opportunity to complement their coursework on campus with experiential education in the field.  

Scholarships Available | 10% Tuition Discount for 2018 Courses | Federal Financial Aid Applies
