Or Headwaters to Oceans Field Studies, represents a new initiative at Shippensburg University to help educate students about the opportunities available to them to study and learn about the physical, chemical, environmental, and biological connections that link central Pennsylvania through our local watersheds, with neighboring townships, counties, and indeed states. Whether through the Chesapeake Bay watershed or indeed through the Atlantic Ocean, a number of faculty from the Department of Geography and Earth Sciences, and the Department of Biology are actively engaged in teaching courses and doing research that allow students first hand opportunities for field study from the Headwaters to our Oceans!
If you want the opportunity to take a 3 credit course to count toward academic credit at Shippensburg - well here's your opportunity. Read More >
