The landscape of the American West is stunning and diverse but has changed dramatically over the eons. During this course we will explore these changes, study flora and fauna, learn regional history, examine regional conservation efforts and ongoing conflicts between man and nature. We will study the ecology of the region by making daily excursions to nearby sites including Yellowstone National Park and Lewis and Clark's Camp Fortunate. We will stay at a beautifully restored ghost town at Centennial Valley located in southern Montana. Three meals will be provided. Additional opportunities such as horseback riding, archery and bird watching are available.
Weber State University’s Honors Program offers you small, challenging and creative courses, as well as opportunities for leadership and social interaction. An “Honors” designation on your transcript and diploma makes you more attractive to employers, graduate schools and professional programs (i.e. medical school, dental school, law school, etc.)
The Honors Center is located on the second floor of the Stewart Library, Room 225. We offer a bank of computers and printers, study tables and couches, and a small kitchenette complete with a refrigerator and microwave oven. Adjacent to the Honors Center is one classroom and a conference room.
Our online application is now up and running! Apply now for next semester! If you are having problems applying online, please contact our office at (801) 626-7336.
