Overall Experience
This program really taught me perspective. The academics were really interesting, and I learned a lot about climate change, but the main focus was climate justice. We learned that everything is intersectional, and climate change is both a threat and a threat multiplier. This program truly changed the way I look at the issues fac... - Duke University View Entire Review

I definitely believe my study abroad experience was worthwhile. When I was initially searching for a program, I knew I wanted to challenge myself and really learn about a topic I am passionate about. I think IHP really enriched my understanding of the world and people and I cannot imagine myself in the future doing something unr... - Wellesley College View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with SIT Study Abroad: International Honors Program / IHP, Climate Change - The Politics of Food, Water, & Energy
Saw three countries in three months (as well as time spent in California at the start of the program) and learned so much about how the world works. The countries we visited each had their own unique perks and we saw and learned a lot. Not the easiest program in the world just in terms of physical, mental and emotional strain,... - Middlebury College View Entire Review
A huge amount of information on climate change and issues of environmental justice, agriculture, and inequality. I had my doubts during the program, but it was absolutely worth it by the end. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
