SFS Returns to Kenya

The School for Field Studies is excited to announce the reopening of our Kenya Center for Spring 2019!

The SFS CENTER FOR WATER AND WILDLIFE STUDIES will once again be based in the southern Kenyan town of Kimana and led by returning Kenya Center Director, Dr. Moses Okello, an expert in African Elephant ecology and conservation. The WATER, WILDLIFE, AND COMMUNITY semester program will take SFS students on field excursions to Tsavo, Amboseli, and Chyulu Hills National Parks to study lions, elephants, giraffes, zebras, and primates up close. Students will explore how issues of water rights and availability have affected Kenya’s wildlife and human communities, and led to human-wildlife conflict. For a two-country comparison on wildlife and land-use, students will conduct a two-week excursion to northern Tanzania, including expeditions to Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro Conservation Area. The semester concludes with a research project focused on ecology, resource management, and socioeconomic development in Kenya.

This program will follow the SFS model offering 4 core courses plus the Directed Research course, totaling 18 credit hours.

* Wildlife Ecology (4 credits)
* Techniques in Natural Resource Management (4 credits)
* Human Dimensions of Conservation (4 credits)
* Introduction to Swahili Language and East African Tribal Communities (2 credits)
* Directed Research (4 credits)

SFS is now accepting Kenya applications. More information about our Kenya Center and programming is available on the KENYA PAGE of our website.

Unique, short term study abroad program through PoE

This is a unique opportunity to study abroad for ten days (December 9th to the 19th) in Beijing, China to culminate a Fall quarter course exploring sustainability and personal choices (ENVIR 239. Sustainability: Personal Choices, Broad Impacts). ENVIR 239 is a broad introduction to sustainability, including foci on consumption, waste, food, water, and energy. An exciting component of this course is that students engage in experiential activities, monitoring or changing their sustainability behavior and then reflecting on that change through the dual lenses of academic material and personal experience.

Throughout the Fall quarter, we will explore sustainability through lecture, reading, discussion, writing, experiential activities, and collaborative work with Tsinghua University students in Beijing. Sustainability is a vital and timely topic and an interactive sustainability class lends itself well to discussion among students at partner universities on two continents. In this course, we will examine environmental challenges and the broader social, cultural and economic systems that gave rise to those problems, and how both the challenges and the potential solutions differ in the U.S. and China.

The culminating trip to Beijing is designed to promote connection and conversation between the Chinese and U.S. students while we experience Beijing through the lens of sustainability. How does this city feed itself, take care of its waste, and provide energy and water to its citizens? How does this compare to Seattle and what does this suggest about the ability of each city, each country, and the globe to continue to meet its needs in future generations? As China and the U.S. are key contributors to planetary unsustainability, understanding the sustainability challenges in these two countries is particularly necessary. If we want our students to understand the global nature of environmental challenges and the way that culture affects our perspectives on those challenges and the array of possible solutions considered, collaborating with Chinese students in a quarter-long sustainability class and then visiting those students in their city seems an ideal approach. Of course, while in Bejing, we will also learn about Chinese culture and history and take field trips to The Great Wall and The Forbidden City.

We hope to recruit a broad range of undergraduate students interested in exploring sustainability, and the differences in sustainability challenges and solutions in the U.S. and China. Undergraduate students from all class years and all majors are invited to join us and a diversity of majors will make this a stronger cohort of students. We are excited about the opportunity to recruit students into this shorter study abroad experience who would otherwise be unable to participate in a study abroad opportunity, potentially increasing access to the incredible learning that can come through study abroad.

COST: 1650$ (does not include airfare) but there are a number of full scholarships available for Pell-Grant and Husky-Promise eligible students!
