Mountains on the Move - Summer Program in Mountain Studies
Experts from a wide range of disciplines will offer a rich, interdisciplinary view of Alpine history, culture, and environment, in this short program taught in the heart of the Alps.
The program will cover topics as diverse as architecture, economic development, climate change, earth sciences, and history.
The course will also take you beyond the classroom and into the mountains in a series of field trips and case studies tied to the latest in current research. The first week will take participants to the Vercors range to learn fist-hand about economic policy and changing local cultural practices.
The second week includes a two-day trip to Lautaret pass and its geological transect to meet with UGA researchers, see the unique and beautiful botanical gardens, and experience sleeping in a mountain shelter. You'll also fuel your hike with some authentic alpine cuisine.
