    • Abstract:
      This paper addresses the importance of interdisciplinary education as a means of helping students make connections about environmental concerns across liberal arts disciplines. Today's hot topic of going "green" was recently explored through a unique curriculum experiment at Lincoln Memorial University (LMU) in Harrogate, Tennessee. Cross-listed courses in both Art and Biology culminated with a 10-day field experience in the country of Belize. Students studied both the tropical ecology and the art and culture of the country, past and present. In Belize, students met members of various communities who are actively involved in preserving the natural resources of the country. While in country, students were encouraged to work with local flora and fauna for making art and to become activists in protecting the various resources Belizeans value. Partnering the arts with the sciences is a logical way to highlight the importance of the interconnectedness of environment and culture. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
