Social Sciences




Based in this rugged region, the School for Field Studies (SFS) conducts field exercises in Australia’s legendary forests, with excursions to the edge of the Outback and the Great Barrier Reef. Our research focuses on the environmental threats that have caused rainforest fragmentation, species loss, and reef die-off, and contributes to community efforts to reverse these trends.  SFS offers two environmental studies summer programs in Australia and New Zealand. Students may choose to attend either one or both sessions:

  • Session I: Rainforests of New Zealand and Australia
  • Session II: Wet Tropics Watershed Ecology & Conservation (takes place only in Australia)
