SFS semester and summer programs offer high-quality interdisciplinary academics at the undergraduate-level, accredited by
SFS classrooms include coral reefs, rainforests, and African savannas; the focus of our research ranges from sea turtle conservation to rainforest restoration.
Programs are designed to teach students about critical, local environmental problems and train them to do field research that will help address these problems. Our faculty provide core lectures needed to understand the content areas pertinent to case study and research questions. Field exercises compliment classroom lectures and help students to develop skills needed for Directed Research projects.
The academic and research agenda at each center is driven by a Five Year Research Plan, established by SFS staff and local community leaders.
