Juniata Study Abroad Courses

Summary

Founded in 1876, Juniata is an independent, co-educational college of liberal arts and sciences. Located in the scenic mountains of central Pennsylvania, the beautiful 110-acre main campus is supplemented by the 365-acre Baker-Henry Nature Preserve and Baker Peace Chapel. In addition, a 365-acre Environmental Studies Field Station on nearby Raystown Lake provides one of the most distinctive opportunities in environmental science in the nation.
The College has a strong reputation for excellent academics, personal attention, and state-of-the-art technological resources. Juniata students enjoy small classes, a challenging, flexible curriculum, collaborative student-faculty relationships, countless chances to learn by doing, and a lively campus offering lots to do and great new friends.
Juniata's mission is to provide an engaging personalized educational experience empowering our students to develop the skills, knowledge and values that lead to a fulfilling life of service and ethical leadership in the global community.

Objectives

We explore the field of natural and social sciences with an emphasis on issues of sustainable development. Courses are designed to provide students academic cum experiential learning opportunities. Students learn how to apply science skills in conjunction with a concern for local communities and their needs. In addition, the rich cultural heritage of each location is explored to understand the forces that have shaped these societies. The course thus invites students to reflect upon the conflicting demands on society and environment.

Status

This project was succeeded by the BCA and then KSAC Study Abroad Courses.
