White Mountains Directions
The White Mountains Institute, the Center for Rural Partnerships, and the Rural Studies Council are pleased to introduce the White Mountains Directions Courses, an intensive, field-based, multidisciplinary academic opportunity for undergraduate students, members of the public, and advanced high school students. Each year, the White Mountains Directions addresses a specific topic of importance to the White Mountain region across two sessions – one session held during Plymouth State’s “winterim” term (January) and one session held over the summer. The capstone will be a multi-day field experience in the White Mountains region where students can apply their coursework in the spectacular outdoor laboratory that the region represents. In all, the White Mountains Directions provides a rich and holistic academic program that will foster intellectual and social growth, and prepare students to be productive citizens of the region and the world.
