Fall and Winter UMich Course Extensions

Thanks to a grant from the U-M Third Century Initiative, the Biological Station is hosting 2-4 week extensions of select classes from the U-M Ann Arbor campus. 

The classes meet either during fall or winter semester in Ann Arbor. There is nothing different about their regular-semester format. However, at the end of (winter) or before the (fall) semester, you spend additional time at the Biological Station, doing hands-on activities related to the class.

Why do this?

Expand your understanding through field trips, interviews and real-world assignments that build on course concepts.

Learn how to approach the kinds of complicated issues that mark our changing world.

No additional tuition -- you already enrolled for the class in the fall or winter.

FREE room and board at the Biological Station: thanks to generous donors, your food and housing is covered.
