Fall Semester in Patagonia

Travel by sea and on foot through some of the world’s wildest terrain as you grow as a leader outside of the traditional classroom.

You'll hike and camp in Patagonia's valleys and mountains and sea kayak in breathtaking archipelagos. Throughout the course, you'll learn about different ways of life—both Chilean culture and living on a wilderness expedition.

If you’re seeking an experience that will challenge you, develop your cultural competency, and deepen your connection to the natural world, then this is the course for you.
