Subject: Summer Travel Study Program in Australia

CMNS and College Park Scholars–Life Sciences invites you to join us for a
2.5-week educational adventure this summer (August 1–August 18, 2015) to
explore the culture, the geology, and the natural history of Australia. The
focus of this travel–study experience is the ecology, geology, and
environment of the Australian deserts, tropical rainforests, and coral reefs.
At each stop, we will discuss the lives of the Aboriginal peoples who settled
these lands and their interactions with the environment as well as how they
were subsequently affected by European colonial settlement. Faculty from the
College of Computer, Mathematical, and Natural Sciences will provide
expertise on the geology and biology of Australia along with the historical
interplay between aboriginal and European cultures.

After spending 2 days in Sydney, we travel to the desert outback for 5 days
followed by 6 days in tropical North Queensland. We end our adventure with a
day on the Great Barrier Reef.

Program Fee: $2875.00 (includes mandatory insurance and Education Abroad
Fees, UMD Summer School Tuition for 3 credits, all ground transportation, all
tours and admissions, a fast boat to the inner and outer reef, snorkeling
equipment, all lodging, tents, and almost all meals for 18 days)

Airfare: Approx. $2700.00 (RT Washington to Sydney, including several
in-country flights)
