Western University GeographyWestern Social Science
Green River, Kentucky

This full year, half-course involves a one-week, field work intensive excursion to an unfamiliar location away from the Western University campus. Field work—real world, on-site observations, data collection, problem solving, team work, technical skills development and application—is at the core of geographical research: it is an essential educational experience.

All field camps stress the importance of preparation prior to departure, the practice of geography in the field, and the completion of one or more assignments in the field and after returning to Western.
