GEOG 295 - Study Tour: Geography of Coffee

(3 credits)
Prerequisite: Consent of the Office of Study Abroad
This course is a study tour that examines the human, physical and environmental geography of coffee production and trade. The tour includes direct involvement with coffee-growing communities, including meals and overnight stays with farm families. Group meetings and student writing are used to integrate the lessons about geography that arise from readings and the travel experience.  May be repeated once for credit when offered in a different country. This course usually takes place in Nicaragua during the winter break.
