Northern Exposure was the 2019 study abroad reporting trip undertaken by students at the University of Montana. The effort involved thousands of miles of travel along the Rock Mountains, exploring the environmental impact of the Canadian tar sands oil exploration. Their final stories were not published, but there are several reports from the road documenting their reporting.
Three weeks, thousands of miles across Canada, and a ton of student journalism along the way: welcome to Northern Exposure 2019. We’re a group of University of Montana students work in a variety of media—print, photo, video and audio. We have among us undergraduate and graduate students and a seasoned professor from Canada.
