The School for Field Studies (SFS) is excited to invite you on the Rainforest Management Studies and Research summer program study abroad program in Australia and New Zealand. The program revolves around two 4-credit courses that can be taken individually or back-to-back. Students will learn about biodiversity conservation and socioeconomic factors that influence land and resource management.
The program is broken down into two sessions, starting with Rainforest Management Studies which takes place on the northern island of New Zealand and Queensland, Australia. During the session, students will compare the various factors that influence resource management in these countries.
The second session, Techniques for Rainforest Research, takes place just in Australia. Here, students will develop research skills used in multiple disciplines along with learning about restoration and conservation of tropical rainforests.
