Miner Applied Environmental Science Program
The Applied Environmental Science Program is our residential semester for senior majors taught each fall at the W.H. Miner Institute, our satellite campus in Chazy, New York (14 miles north of Plattsburgh).
Most students live at the Institute in spacious dormitories with other majors. Five field/lab courses, taught in an alternative, day-long format, utilize the Institute’s 8,000 acres of forests and fields and their extensive laboratory and computer facilities.
Many student research projects take advantage of the Ecosystem Studies Field Lab in the Altona Flat Rock Pine Barrens.
Over 1,000 alumni have received certificates by participating in this unique program.
