Conservation or Restoration: Studying Two Large Rivers in the Americas

The University of Illinois Springfield program provides both a study abroad experience with an undergraduate research experience in the area of environmental science and water, in particular, river ecology. It combines an online course, based on the local environmental water resources of the U.S. and Brazil, with an ongoing international collaborative research agenda in the context of a bi-directional student exchange program. Students will work with real datasets, learn from river ecologists and river management professionals, and experience field studies on two large rivers in the Americas.
