ES 130G - Intermediate Reading in Spanish: Environmental Studies (4 Cr.)

(SP 229G and SP 399G) (GCR-ENV and GCR-SA)
This interdisciplinary course allows students to study environmental sustainability issues and Spanish in Ecuador, which is one of the most bio-diverse countries in the world.  This course encompasses a pre-program course and an international field experience that includes living on San Cristóbal Island, visiting several other islands in the Galápagos, and visiting Otavalo (an indigenous community) in Ecuador.  This course will examine the tensions that exist in the Galápagos between preserving one of the world’s most pristine ecosystems and sustaining the people who live and depend on the islands’ resources.  We will also consider the role of the indigenous cultures in helping the government of Ecuador advance progressive sustainability initiatives in the face of demands to extract the non-renewable resources that exist in this bio-diverse country. Spring semester at Goucher (2 Spanish and 2 Environmental Studies), and 4 credits during the three week intensive course in Ecuador (2 Environmental Studies and 2 Spanish). Prerequisite: SP 130 . Students will receive credit for SP 229G  or for independent work in Spanish (1-3 credits, the equivalent to SP 399G ). Spring/Summer. Offered 2020 and alternate years. Miranda-Aldaco and Billo.
