The course is divided into three sessions. The pre-trip sessions will consist of assignments using the course web site. These assignments will focus on Darwin and his discoveries including his five-year voyage on the H.M.S Beagle and his publication of "The Origin of Species". They will also focus on background information on Ecuador, the Galapagos Islands and rainforest ecosystems. There are two options to the trip session to Ecuador. Option 1 will consist of a one-week rainforest program at Jatun Sacha. Option 2 will consist of a one-week program sailing among the Galapagos Island. The 4-credit course option includes both of options 1 and 2. The 3-credit option includes only option 2. Several evening programs will be presented while in Ecuador.
