The American West Course

The American West is an interdisciplinary undergraduate course taught by a distinguished group of five scholars from different departments and two different schools. It integrates several disciplinary perspectives into a comprehensive examination of western North America: its history, physical geography, climate, literature, art, film, institutions, politics, demography, economy, and continuing policy challenges. For more information take a look at our website.

Sophomore College

In 2018 the class studied public lands in Utah.  Visit our page for a detailed map journal of our trip.  For 2019 we plan to study Energy in Hawaii.

Undergraduate Research

The Center hires several undergraduate researchers during both the school year and summer.  Find more information on what our researches have been working on to support the Center's efforts.
