Additional Comments: The School for Field Studies (SFS) semester and summer programs are high-quality interdisciplinary academic, undergraduate-level programs that are accredited by the University of Minnesota. SFS "classrooms" include coral reefs, rainforests, and African savannas; the focus of our research ranges from wildlife conservation to rainforest restoration. Our semester study abroad and summer college study abroad programs are designed to teach students about critical local environmental problems.
