University Courses - Churchill Northern Studies Centre - Subarctic Research - Churchill Manitoba

The Centre seeks to foster the intellectual curiosity of university level students by hosting university credit course. Through provision of a safe base for field operations, laboratory and classroom facilities and vehicle support the Centre makes a perfect destination for field course offerings in many different disciplines. In addition, these university credit courses can be offered throughout the year and vary in length depending on curriculum. Most courses are led by professors from the home institution and enrolment and credit are given through the home institution. In the past the Centre has hosted courses from Canadian universities such as the Universities of Toronto, Guelph, Manitoba and Winnipeg as well as American universities such as South Dakota State University, University of Wisconsin, Kennesaw State University and University of Maine.

The Centre offers a subsidy to university credit course instructors to help reduce the cost of offering subarctic field courses. To receive the university credit course package rate, the course must have a minimum of five students enrolled. The rates include room and board, annual membership fee, airport (or train) pick-up and drop-off for participants and vehicle support appropriate to the group size (excluding fuel and driver). In addition, the primary course instructor stays for free. Laboratory and classroom space will be made available where possible to support teaching.
