Smithsonian-Mason Semester in Conservation Studies

The Smithsonian-Mason Global Conservation Studies Program is proud to offer two 16-credit programs for undergraduates committed to the study of conservation, based at the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute (SCBI) near the Shenandoah National Park in Front Royal, Virginia.

Each semester-long program, Applied Conservation Strategies and Ecology for Effective Conservation Practices, offers five integrated courses that include a practicum work experience with researchers at the SCBI as well as classes focusing on conservation theory and applications. The Semester in Applied Conservation Strategies focuses on the scientific, sociopolitical and economic root causes of conservation issues and ways in which science informs management and policy. Ecology for Effective Conservation Practices emphasizes the application of ecological theory to the study of conservation and methods for successfully communicating about threats to species.

Our new academic and dorm facilities provide a state-of-the-art learning environment. During the Semester, students live in a close-knit academic community that emphasizes active learning, teamwork, hands-on experience, public communication and case studies, preparing them for conservation-related professions and graduate study.

These unique programs are open to upper-level and post-baccalaureate students from any college or university. Students should have completed a minimum of 60 credits of college course work, and have a demonstrated commitment to conservation. In addition, for the Semester in Ecology for Effective Conservation Practices, students should have completed at least one upper-level ecology course, as the science content in this program is more rigorous. Semester programs may be taken individually or in consecutive semesters. A federal background check is required.

Please share this information with students and colleagues across disciplines who may be interested in this opportunity. The application deadline is March 1, 2012, and more information about the program and the application may be accessed at our website
