    Take a glimpse into a day in the life of a student on a semester or summer program with The School for Field Studies at the Center for Marine Resource Studies in the Turks and Caicos Islands.

    More about SFS:

    The remote locations in which we operate, from the world-class national parks of East Africa and pristine Caribbean coral reefs to World Heritage rainforests and the lush Himalayan mountain ridges, offer some of the most important and bio-diverse ecosystems in the world. They are your classrooms with boundless opportunities for learning and personal growth.

    An SFS undergraduate study abroad program begins with identifying the critical environmental issues that often plague these natural wonders. Coral reef degradation from encroaching tourism in the Turks and Caicos Islands, the effects of climate change on Australia’s tropical rainforests, and human/wildlife land-use conflicts in Kenya all threaten complex networks that humans and wildlife alike depend upon for habitat and resources.
