Université Grenoble Alpes Website


The program covers topics as diverse as architecture, tourism, climate change, earth sciences, and history.

The course also takes you beyond the classroom and into the mountains in a series of field trips and case studies tied to the latest in current research.
Last year, participants discovered the Vercors range to learn first-hand about economic policy and changing local cultural practices. They also traveled for a two-day trip to Lautaret pass and its geological transect to meet with UGA researchers, to see the unique and beautiful botanical gardens and experienced sleeping in a mountain shelter.
