Summer Ecosystem Experiences for Undergraduates

The Summer Ecosystem Experiences for Undergraduates (SEE-U) program provides undergraduate students of all majors with a global understanding of ecology and environmental sustainability. The SEE-U program gives you the opportunity to participate in a combination of lectures and labs, while conducting environmental fieldwork in unique natural settings around the world.

Thumbnail_EICES_SEE-U_2014_Brochure_ImageIn the words of one student: “The SEE-U program is a life changing experience.  This program teaches you not only about ecology and sustainable development but also about a new country, its culture, and, ultimately, more about yourself.  SEE-U allows you to bond with your classmates and instructors in a way that is impossible to do in a formal classroom.  These memories will last a lifetime.”
