Interdisciplinary Studies 180:Camping

Students develop a small research proposal based on coursework they have completed (usually in their major) and execute their research in an outdoor environment, such as Congaree National Park, during a three-day camping trip. Participants learn how to pitch a tent, pack their backpacks, plan outdoor meals as part of a group, and collaborate as they explore the natural environment and complete their projects. Use your own gear or borrow everything from us; the Center for Interdisciplinary Studies supports all participants.
