Mountains 101 is a broad and integrated overview of the mountain world. This 12-lesson course covers an interdisciplinary field of study focusing on the physical, biological, and human dimensions of mountain places in Alberta, Canada, and around the world. Specifically, we'll study the geological origins of mountains, how they’re built-up and worn-down over time; we’ll learn about their importance for biodiversity and water cycles, globally and locally; we’ll explore their cultural significance to societies around the globe, and how that relationship has evolved over time; and we’ll learn how mountains are used, how they’re protected, and how today they’re experiencing rapid change in a warming climate.

This was a real eye opener to the outside world and how wildlife, people, and plants manage to continue to live in the mountains. It was a truly imformative course that i will recommend to others.
Extremely informative and well presented by the professors. The added insight of various other scientists and members of Parks Canada amplified the understanding of lesson subjects. Thank you!!
