About Customized Tours
In addition to regular offerings that are open to participants (students and non-students) worldwide, Earth Education International also cooperates with Associate Partner institutions on implementation of study tours: Stand-alone courses, alternative spring-break tours, field trips associated with partner institution courses, and service-learning placements. These tours are customized educational experiences that may or may not be open to the general public.
Study Tour Logistics
Because study tours emphasize applied learning, substantial field study experiences are provided along-side time spent in the classroom. These tours are typically short in length: From one to two weeks. Thus, significant class time is typically met in the field at various field sites. Inline with our community approach to sustainability, participant lodging typically consists of mid-range hotels or eco-lodges, with a preference for those that are more environmentally-friendly and/or socially-responsible whenever possible.
During these visits, participants are provided with a unique opportunity to learn from, and share with, local experts. Tours are usually lead cooperatively by both EEI Staff and a faculty representative from the partner institution.
Application for participation, academic credit, and other logistics are often handled by our partner institution offering the course.
