SUNY Stony Brook University Study Abroad

About

Stony Brook University is a SUNY school (State University of New York). Stony Brook realizes the importance and necessity of an international academic experience to benefit students wishing to remain in a competitive pool of applicants for employment or graduate studies. The Office of International Academic Programs, or IAP, helps students find exciting opportunities that will enhance their academic experience. Students first begin with deciding whether they will attend a study abroad/short term program, or an international exchange/long term program. The former typically involves a faculty led experience, with all courses in English, and are held over the summer or winter sessions. The latter consists of a direct enrollment program into a partner institution, and generally lasts for a semester or academic year. Interested?

An absolutely mesmerizing experience, full of incredible biodiversity (especially including lemurs!), diverse and rich cultures, and meeting incredibly talented and passionate individuals at Centre ValBio in Ranomafana National Park! You will get to do independent research on a topic of your choosing within the fields of tropical biology, anthropology, global health and culture. You will also get to see some of the other incredible landscapes Madagascar has to offer, from jagged mountains to crystal waters crashing on the arid western shore. This program certainly changed many of my perspectives on global conservation and development, and I feel it has made me more prepared for my career as a biologist. From hearing the haunting wail of an indri echoing through a rainforest to seeing ring-tailed lemurs in their native habitat, I will remember my time in Madagascar until the end of my days.

A fair warning though- should you decide to go, you will ever be infected with a longing in your heart to return.

What would you improve about this program?
I felt that the independent project may have been better coordinated and logistically planned, as I had to trim down the scope of my project while I was doing it.

An incredible experience with talented scientists. Doesn't get much more hands on than this! Nothing better than waking up to the sound of lemurs climbing above in the trees or going on night walks through an incredible rainforest.

This experience was one of the best I've ever had oversees. From day one, the program coordinator had made me feel like this trip was about seeing and experiencing Japan as it really is. The accommodations were with a local family who treated you with the upmost respect while doing their best to try to accomodate your every need. This was by far one of the best experiences I've had!
