Alternatives to the Stretch

The Department of Earth Sciences is committed to making the earth sciences accessible to all and encourages students who are unable to complete the Stretch to consider, as appropriate, summer field courses offered by other universities or the alternative accessible field course listed on the International Association for Geoscience Diversity website. Students anticipating difficulty scheduling the Stretch during their junior or senior fall term should speak with the Chair or the EARS academic advisor as soon as possible to explore the range of alternative plans.
