The School for Field Studies (SFS) offers semester and summer programs for students interested in studying abroad in Tanzania. The multidisciplinary programs focus on wildlife management practices and the complex issues involved in sustainable wildlife conservation in East Africa.
Students on a SFS Wildlife Management Studies program study concepts and principles of ecology, resource management, and socioeconomics and techniques for effective and sustainable wildlife conservation. Students develop skills to explore the ecology and behavior of common African large mammals. Students also study the well-being of local communities, and interview Maasai community members about challenges they face by the loss of natural resources.
Each monthlong summer session can be taken individually or back-to-back.
