Come hear about all the opportunities for undergraduates that the Bill Lane Center offers including our American West spring course, annual sophomore college trips, Center research, and summer internships. We will have students who have participated in the different aspects of the Center and we encourage you to stop by the Haas Center to learn more.
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.
In 2020, we will be returning to the Columbia River which is the trip we did in 2017. It may be slightly different as this time we will have Professors David Freyberg (CEE) and David Kennedy (History) as the faculty leaders. Find more information from our 2017 trip for details.
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.
