Anyone who has learned a second language knows about the benefits of learning through immersion. Au Sable’s upper-level, college courses apply the same concept to learning about the natural world around us, immersing students in the ecosystems they’ll study during our January, May, and Summer Sessions at four different locations around the globe. This approach has far-reaching impacts on learning. As one student puts it, “Au Sable offers a completely unique, tremendous educational experience that [has been] life changing. My classes at Au Sable were the best in my life, and given the chance, I would do it again a hundred times over.” From the shores of Lake Michigan to the Pacific Ocean, across the sea to India, or to the tropical climes of Costa Rica, we have something for you!
Au Sable offers courses for college and university students. Participants can take classes, learn hands-on skills and techniques, gain field experience, conduct research, develop tools for environmental stewardship, and experience science education from a Christian perspective.
