Switzerland, a country of stunning mountain vistas, truly lies at the crossroads of Europe. It is among the top-rated countries in the world with regard to health care, environmental policy, public transportation, infrastructure, live-able cities and healthy lifestyles. This experiential learning program applies an ecological framework to better understand how culture, policy, and practice interact to achieve a sustainable and healthy society.
During spring semester students attend a weekly seminar, complete background research, and write a research paper. Students are assigned to a research teams for field research in Switzerland. For our Swiss academic program, we stay in Kandersteg, nestled in the Alps, travel to nearby cities and hike to complete a series of related research exercises.
