Featured Programs

Take SAGES courses in Spain or London!

CWRU is offering two SAGES courses with study abroad this year.

This fall, you can study
USSY 288L: Future Energy at Home and Abroad, which includes a winter break study abroad experience in Spain. This course investigates what we can do both individually and collectively to tackle this energy challenge. The questions considered include: To what extent is the world aware of the energy challenge and its environmental implications? What is already being done to meet this challenge? What role can technology play in addressing it? What research can we be doing now to help predict the future of our energy needs and potential environmental impacts? By investigating these questions, you will develop a fuller and more precise understanding of the energy challenge, as well as generate possible solutions. This course will include visits to main energy conversion facilities involving wind and solar, both thermal and photovoltaic. Also planned are visits to cities of historical heritage including Seville and Granada. The deadline for this application is September 1.

In the spring, we are offering
USNA 272: The Thames Watershed, which travels to London over spring break. In this seminar, students will investigate the London, England-area Thames watershed and its associated concerns, like urban development, watershed management, aquatic species conservation, and habitat engineering and restoration. While in London, students will focus on London’s main watershed and its history and ecology and study the Lea River Valley (where the 2012 summer Olympics were located), the Fleet River, and various water-related constructions, such as Docklands, Regent’s Canal, and the Wildfowl and Wetlands Nature Reserve, each from historical and ecological standpoints. Emphasis will be on how humans have treated the watershed historically, from using the rivers as sewers and transportation links, to restoring its ecosystems, as is the current case in the Lea River Valley. Course readings will be a mix of cultural history, London newspaper archives, and scientific studies on riparian corridor management. The deadline for this application is December 1.
