Study with Brown University in Alaska! BELL is a unique outdoor learning laboratory. The courses draw their curricula from many different disciplines: history, biology, geology, economics, environmental studies, and leadership theory. In this course, students will travel to southern Alaska to experience, first-hand, the beauty and complexities of present-day Alaska. Learning will be fast-paced, experiential, and include widely diverse perspectives. Over the course of 2-weeks, you will explore the issues Alaska Natives face when trying to balance cultural and environmental preservation with economic growth. Our life choices, world-wide, have a direct impact on trade-offs between conservation and consumption that play out on the Alaskan stage. This program will specifically focus on current environmental issues in Alaska with relevance around the globe. We will specifically focus our learning around: Alaska Native history and cultural preservation, Artic marine and terrestrial ecosytems, Oil exploration and extraction, Socially-responsible leadership, and Sustainable harvests of salmon. *Although the BELL program is co-educational, students will spend 2 nights in yurts while the group is on the Kenai Peninsula. Yurts are separated by gender, therefore it is critical that we track registrations by gender in order to accommodate the single sex nature of our overnight lodgings. If you have questions about this designation, please contact us at 401-863-7900. If you are female, please register for CRN 10682. If you are male, please register for CRN 10861. Application process includes: online application, essay, transcript, application fee. Accepted Pre-College students may apply for Dean’s Scholarships, awarded to students who demonstrate financial need and academic merit. Need is determined by considering several factors, including family income, family size, number of siblings in college, and housing expenses.
