Program Description:
Imagine visiting the coldest, windiest, driest, highest, quietest, most remote, and least understood continent on Earth and one that is undoubtedly the most fascinating to the human imagination. Students must attend mandatory weekly lectures during the Fall (available anywhere via webcast), prepare a research essay in the area of their primary interest, and then participate in a 2 week field study in Antarctica and Ushuaia, Argentina.

During the field study we will spend 10 days aboard an Antarctica cruise liner to explore the Antarctic Peninsula and another 3-4 days exploring the natural and cultural systems of Tierra del Fuego and the tip of South America. December is summer in the southern hemisphere, though temperatures will vary considerably. This is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Students on the Brockport Antarctica program will be traveling with students from Oregon State University and Virginia Tech through the American Universities International Programs consortium.

Top reasons to choose this program:
  • Where else would you have the chance to see huge glaciers rolling into the sea, vast penguin colonies, whales, seals, orcas, icebergs, and more?
  • Few people ever have the chance to visit the remote and beautiful White Continent. For those of you seeking an adventure - this is your ultimate chance.
  • Our expedition ship has a fleet of Zodiac landing crafts, which allow us to take daily excursions ashore onto the continent for spectacular scenery and close encounters with wildlife.
  • Experience 24 hours of daylight - take stunning photos at midnight and spot wildlife at all hours of day and night!
  • Antarctica has the world's greatest concentration of wildlife in the world. It is perhaps the last true wilderness left on our planet.
THE APPLICATION DEADLINE IS TYPICALLY IN EARLY JUNE, THE SUMMER PRIOR TO THE WINTER BREAK EXPERIENCE, SO PLAN AHEAD!
