This is a 4 credit, research-based global study course that provides students with an intense four week, field-based learning experience that focuses on paleoanthropology, paleoecology, geology, archaeology, ecology and conservation, and culture of nomadic pastoralists of the Ngorongoro Highlands in Tanzania.
This field school will offer students a memorable, yet academically challenging opportunity to walk in the footsteps of our ancestors, a journey which began a mere 3.56 million years ago. Explore the beauty and wonders that one of Africa's most peaceful countries, Tanzania, has to offer and make lifelong and meaningful connections with cultures rich in diversity.
Geographically, Tanzania exhibits some of the most diverse, awesome, and breathtaking topography known to humankind. Tanzania's diverse and ever-changing landscape - the awe-inspiring Mt. Kilimanjaro, the Serengeti Plains, the Ngorongoro Crater, and the many coastal sites scattered along the shores of the Indian Ocean - houses some of the richest fauna, flora, and indigenous cultural groups with which to interact.
Students are in-country June 28 until July 31. The Field School dates are July 1 - July 30.
