The School for Field Studies (SFS) offers an amazing chance to study abroad on the Turks and Caicos Islands in the summer. The program is located on South Caicos, where the SFS Center for Marine Resource Studies and an ocean laboratory can be found. The SFS field station houses all students in the program, and looks out directly over the sea. Each monthlong session can be taken individually or back-to-back.
Explore the beautiful surroundings, with coral reefs, mangroves, seagrass beds, and deep water diving spots all within a few mile radius. The spectacular reefs, turquoise waters, and island community of South Caicos serve as the laboratory for studies and fieldwork. Students snorkel or scuba dive and gain valuable field experience, learning techniques for ecosystem assessment and long-term monitoring, and practicing interview and other stakeholder engagement techniques to examine social questions. Students participate in a field research project on a local environmental issue.
