Tatoosh Summer Semester

8 weeks: June 20 – August 14, 2022

Explore wild Alaska, earn credit toward your degree, and have the adventure you’re ready for. This field course is a great fit for undergraduates interested in exploring topics from biology to art to politics.

  2. Check out @tatooshschool on Instagram for photos and stories from the field;
  3. Scroll through this recent feature on the Tongass in the Washington Post’s Invisible Project; and
  4. Learn more and apply at tatooshschool.org.

Applications are due March 1, 2022

About the Semester

This 8-week program covers a full semester’s course work. We will explore from the Outer Coast to the Inside Passage and study interactions at varying scales and across biological, social, biophysical and cultural boundaries. Four academic courses are taken concurrently (see descriptions, just below). You’ll receive some pre-reading in April to complete before arriving in Alaska. All undergraduate and first-year graduate students are encouraged to apply and no prerequisites are required.

Over our 8 weeks together, we’ll embark on four 7-10 day backcountry sea kayak expeditions, plus three shorter remote trips. Our base camp in Coffman Cove is our resupply, resting place and community anchor. You’ll travel into and out of Wrangell, Alaska by jet, and we’ll also use water taxis to move between islands. Email, call or text Erin (erin@tatooshschool.org, 907-406-9075) if you’re thinking about applying and have questions about any part of the process or the course. A detailed itinerary and other enrollment materials will be provided upon acceptance.

Course Descriptions

All four of these courses are 4 semester or 6 quarter units and are listed as 410/510 at Portland State University. You’re responsible for working with your home institution to transfer and apply them to your program of study. We’re here to provide any information and support you might need.

Community Ecology uses a systems approach to examine the biology of the Pacific Coastal Ecoregion. The course develops a foundational understanding of the geomorphology, ecology and natural history of southern southeast Alaska. Students gain familiarity with nearshore, estuarine, forest and river environments.

Case Studies for Change employs case studies to unpack tools for responding to social change. Topics include nearshore aquatic habitat, island biogeography, stream ecology and restoration, fisheries, wildlife ecology and management, forest succession and water quality. Examples of case studies are at-risk Alexander Archipelago wolves; karst-forest-fish systems; shifting salmon species composition; and freshwater habitat restoration. Students will talk with case experts and see resilience first-hand.

Public Land Management for the 21st Century looks into the future of public land management through examples, experiences and conversations with key leaders on the Tongass National Forest. At just over 16.6 million acres, the Tongass is America’s biggest national forest by far. Its ownership and management are a policy learning laboratory for public lands and natural resource conservation across the United States. Students will analyze challenges and opportunities on the Tongass to animate transformational social, political and economic approaches to public land management.

Political Ecology of Prince of Wales Island studies the relationship between society and environment on Prince of Wales Island, Alaska. The course examines how processes of environmental conservation, restoration, development and conflicts over natural resource use and control have shaped the biophysical, cultural, social and economic landscape. Through readings, discussion and community-engaged learning students will explore concepts and lived experience of Indigenous rights, property relations, community well-being, history and the particularities of place. The course is predicated on the assumption that while environmental problems are often common, their causes are complex and changing. Therefore, many solutions are specific to time and place. Here, we choose Prince of Wales Island and dig in.

AURN Audio Journalism Internship, Summer 2022

*Must be able to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination and booster*

Whether it’s a radio news release, story segment, or scripted headlines, writing for audio is challenging. Audio requires more description than video because your audience can’t rely on pictures to understand what’s happening. It requires more clarity than print because your audience can’t go back and re-read what they’ve just heard. This internship is right for you if you would like to further develop your audio writing skills in a real-world setting, where 5+ million listeners will hear your pieces each week.

AURN produces two, nationally syndicated public affairs radio shows, Viewpoints Radio and Radio Health Journal, airing on 840 and 630 stations across the country, respectively. The programs are also posted to several major podcast platforms, including Spotify, Google Play and Apple podcasts. We seek interns who want to work side by side with industry experts to gain in-depth experience in writing, editing and interviewing. Some of our previous interns have gone on to work for NPR’s All Things Considered, NPR’s 1A, KNX-AM Los Angeles, WAND-TV, ESPN, ABC News, Disney and us.

Responsibilities:

· Brainstorm and develop new segment ideas for both shows. 

· Interview authors and experts in a variety of fields.

· Research and write long-form stories for our two public affairs programs.

· Work side-by-side with the industry’s top producers, studio engineers and editors on radio pieces.

· Assist with social media posts for both shows on an ‘as needed’ basis.

Requirements:

· Incoming junior or senior with a major/minor in journalism who lives in the Chicago area and can come to our office. 

· Excellent written/verbal skills – including grammar and proofreading.

· Hard-working with a professional demeanor, an eagerness to learn, and a high regard for deadlines.

· Completed coursework in broadcast journalism, and/or has extracurricular experience in scriptwriting for radio/audio.

Learning Objectives:

  • Be able to independently schedule and conduct advanced, longform interviews with experts and write an informative, focused script that displays multiple angles of a story and seamlessly incorporates several soundbites from interviews.
  • Gain practical experience in journalism, be able to identify and work with issues that arise with journalistic responsibility and ethics.
  • Advance writing skills applicable to all forms of journalism. 
  • Produce several polished audio features with your name on it to add to your portfolio (LinkedIn, personal website, etc.)
