Given the growing spread of COVID-19, expanded travel restrictions aimed at containing the virus, and the general uncertainty regarding timelines for the lifting of travel restrictions, the School of Arts and Sciences has decided to suspend all Penn Summer Abroad programs for summer 2020.
This 12-day, hands-on program introduces you to the nature, culture, history and languages of the European Alps in Switzerland and Italy. We explore the geology of the Alps and how it influences the development of wildlife, flora, history, religion, culture and entire regions. We also investigate how humans have altered the environment and how we respond to climate change in Alpine ecosystems.
