This program is definitely more social-science focused than I anticipated, being a STEM student myself. However, the classes, excursions, and discussions with locals tied together to present a big-picture view of the ecological and human challenges relating to climate change in a very engaging way. Classes were taught in Spanish by a different professor for each lecture, offering an interesting variety of perspectives but also many different paces of language.
The scenery and location is definitely the highlight of the program. Ushuaia sits on the base and up the slopes of the Southern Andes and, of course, Antarctica's landscapes were unbelievable. That said, the busy class schedule and several weekend excursions don't leave a ton of time for exploring and hiking.
