Course and Credit Information
Field-based courses are at the heart of Au Sable’s work, and we’ve been offering them for over 30 years now. Our courses supplement the environmental science curriculum of over 50 Christian colleges throughout North America, allowing you to take a diverse range of courses focused on your area of interest at our four campuses around the world: Great Lakes, Pacific Rim, Costa Rica, and India.
Au Sable courses meet upper-level biology, environmental science, and environmental studies requirements, either as required or elective credits, towards an undergraduate degree. Additionally, almost all of our courses are designated as 4-credit hours. However, if you are a prospective student, it is important to verify the credits you’ll receive with your faculty representative.
Below is a list of our course offerings for this school year and upcoming summer. Each course includes a course description, which days it meets, the course type (field, interdisciplinary, and/or applied), the total number of course hours (contact hours), and our instructor. The course type and contact hours can be used when selecting courses which meet the requirements for our Certificate Programs. If you have any further questions about courses, please contact our admissions office. You may also download a copy of our course brochure or academic bulletin.
