A group of 25 American undergraduate students from 20 different universities/colleges of the United States of America (USA) arrived in Bhutan on August 28, 2017. The students will undergo a 3 month’s fall semester program in Bhutan on Himalayan Environment and Society in Transition. They undertake three courses: i) Political and Socioeconomic Dimensions of Environment; ii) Mountain Ecology; and iii) Land Use, Natural Resources, and Conservation. The students will carryout a directed field research and also learn about Bhutan’s language and culture.

The semester is hosted at the SFS Center for Himalayan Environment and Development at Paro in partnership with the Bhutan Ecological Society (BES) and the Ugyen Wangchuck Institute for Conservation and Environmental Research (UWICER), DoFPS.
