The School for Field Studies

Program Content

SFS semester and summer programs offer high-quality interdisciplinary academics at the undergraduate-level, accredited by Boston University.

SFS classrooms include coral reefs, rainforests, African savannas, and the Himalayas; the focus of our research ranges from sea turtle conservation to rainforest restoration.

Programs are designed to teach students about critical, local environmental problems and train them to do field research that will help address these problems. Our faculty provide core lectures needed to understand the content areas pertinent to case study and research questions. Field exercises compliment classroom lectures and help students to develop skills needed for Directed Research projects.

The academic and research agenda at each center is driven by a Five Year Research Plan, established by SFS staff and local community leaders.

Summer Program Structure

Session is offered twice per summer and runs for approximately 30 days.

  • Programs in Australia, East Africa, Costa Rica and the Turks and Caicos Islands offer two sessions that run back-to-back.
  • Our Bhutan program operates on a six-week schedule and carries six credits.

Each offers one course, which carries four college-level semester credits in Environmental Studies or Public Health.
