Environmental Justice in Antarctica


The Environmental Justice Program in Antarctica takes you where no other program can. Classes are small and are taught by the Sea Shepherd crew. Gain hands-on experiences in the field while gaining academic credit. Students must have the ability to adapt to a new way of learning (outdoor instruction, sometimes at night), ability to adapt successfully to a cold and sometimes harsh environment, and strenuous physical activity involving ship maintenance.

Students attend classes with U.S. and international students.


You will bunk with other students in the sleeping berth areas. While docked students may sleep on cots or on shore.


Semester / year students: You will take a total of 24 quarter/16 semester units per semester.

Sample courses:

  • Political Ecology, Environmental Security, and Conflict
  • International Environmental Policy
  • Negotiation Skills in Environmental Dispute Resolution
  • Climate Change Adaptation
  • And many more…

Environmental Justice in Antarctica will help UC meet its goal to send 10,000 students abroad every year by 2020 and you could be a global pioneer blazing your path through the new global age.
