When you study abroad with SFS, you're joining a community of environmental leaders. Earn college credit, learn about critical environmental issues, conduct hands-on field research -- and return home with tangible research skills to help address complex, global environmental issues.
With SFS, you will...
- Be part of an international research team working to solve local environmental problems, from replanting critically fragmented rainforests in Australia to helping Costa Rican farmers transition to organic agriculture.
- Develop personal relationships with members of the local community, putting a human face on the environmental problems you are studying, which is often the most rewarding part of the SFS experience.
- Be challenged and inspired by the work you do – making a real difference in a local community and making positive contributions toward the sustainable use of the world's natural resources.
After an SFS program, you will never see the world – or yourself – the same way again.
