Students need to receive permission of one of the instructors to enroll. This will be a physically rigorous course and will require students to endure long periods of exposure to the elements.
All students must demonstrate an ability to maintain composure and swim in the water. To enroll, students will need to submit two references and a one-page description of why you would like to take the course (submit to Andrea Ward).
Additionally, all students will need to pass a swim test (given at the end of the fall semester or in January), meet with one of the faculty members for an interview and complete the study abroad online application.
