ABS formal curriculum and courses

ABS formal curriculum and courses We formed a Curriculum Committee (4 faculty + Coordinator) to develop certification protocol for our ABS Trainees and Associates. This includes four-year plan showing how students can meet all program competencies, including language, cross-disciplinary training, disciplinary depth, etc. The Certification Plan (available on has been commented on and approved by full ABS faculty. The ABS I course was co-taught by a biologist and anthropologist for the first time to 17 graduate students from 5 departments. Syllabus available on ABS website. Although the course was required for the three Trainees, more students registered for the course than could be admitted. The ABS II course will be co-taught in Spring 2010 by an oceanographer and geographer.
