GEOG 328B, The Geography of the Caribbean, is a 3-credit, short-term, faculty accompanied, Study Abroad program. It is the product of the joint efforts of the University of Maryland’s Department of Geographical Sciences and the University’s Education Abroad Department.
The program studies the cultural and physical geography of the Windward and Leeward Islands in the Caribbean. To do this, the class spends at least 7 days aboard a windjammer tall ship, along with time spend on land.
Islands visited are, for the most part, non-tourist islands.
The class is led by Professor Joseph Trocino, a Lecturer within the Department of Geographical Sciences.
The Teaching Assistants for 2014 will be Claire Weber and Melinda Rosenberg, both class veterans.
The 2014 class will be the 9th year for this popular program. Over 100 students from the University of Maryland and other colleges and universities have benefited from this study abroad experience.
