The Natural History of the Galápagos Islands and Ecuador is a full course divided into two parts. The course descriptions for the two half-courses are as follows:

    • BIO 365/ HON 365/ IDS 365 The Natural History of the Galápagos Islands and Ecuador I:
      An introduction to the natural history (including ecology of plants and animals, geology, and climate) of the Galápagos Islands and Ecuador, with a reflection on interactions between these and the history, culture and economics of the Islands and Ecuador from pre-colonial to modern times.  Offered during spring semester.  (Students must also enroll in BIO 366/ HON 366/IDS 366, which will be offered during Summer Session I of the same year.) This course will be offered in Spring Semester, 2017.
    • BIO 366/ HON 366/ IDS 366 The Natural History of the Galápagos Islands and Ecuador II:
      An immersion experience to develop a deep understanding of the natural history (including geology, climate, and ecology of plants and animals) of the Galápagos Islands and continental Ecuador, with a reflection on interactions between these and the history, culture and economics of the Islands and Ecuador from pre-colonial to modern times.  Offered during Summer Session I (formerly Maymester).  (Limited to students who will participate in the faculty-led abroad experience—a two-week, intensive trip to the Galápagos Islands and Ecuador.) The dates for the 2017 trip are May 19 to June 2.
