IND-305.2 Winter Wilderness Experience

The Winter Wilderness Experience (WWE), an off-campus program based in the Sawtooth Mountains of Stanley, Idaho, is a team-taught, interdisciplinary, place-based, and experiential examination of environmental issues. WWE focuses on public land policy, cultural geography, creative writing, winter ecology, wilderness studies (literary, historical, and philosophical), and backcountry skiing. Students take a 2-credit preparatory course during the Fall term before the 4-credit Winter course. Three credits from WWE are equivalent to the ENV-200: Nature and Culture. As determined by the instructors in consultation with each student, the remaining 3 credits of WWE can apply to either the Creative Writing or Social Science electives within the Environmental Studies major. Permission to enroll in WWE is determined by formal applications as well as personal interviews. Prerequisites: IND-305.1 and Instructor permission.
