Expedition Alaska takes place in APU’s fall ‘block.’  The block is a 4-week term when students take only one intensive class.  After block, students are enrolled in the ‘session,’ with a more traditional course schedule.  Together, the block and session comprise the semester.

For Expedition Alaska, the block allows us to start with in-depth, on-campus academic study.  You then move in to the field for experiential learning.  The course culminates when you return to campus for further integration and reflections about what you’ve learned.
