Biodiversity Conservation and Management in East Africa
AFS /ENVS /BIO 242
Students will be exposed to East Africa's rich biological and physical diversity and the interplay between them and socio-economic and managerial factors. It will afford students an opportunity to evaluate the implications of actions, or lack thereof, being taken by different players at the local, national and regional levels in order to conserve and sustainable manage the region's vast biological resources.
Special note to SLU biology majors: Biology students in the Kenya Program can earn 1 or 1.5 units of Biology credit.
Students who take BIO242: Biodiversity Conservation and Management in East Africa and participate in an independent study project with significant biology content will receive 1.5 unit of biology credit. The Academic Director of the KSP will determine what constitutes significant biology content. This credit will not be major credit restricted (MCR). These students will receive 1 unit of credit for the Core Course and 1.5 biology credit.
Students who take BIO242 but do not do an independent study with significant biology content will receive 1 unit of biology credit that is MCR and 1.5 units for the Core Course.
