The SFS East Africa program has been modified for Fall 2014 and Spring 2015 due to safety concerns. Both semesters will take place exclusively in Tanzania. You may apply through UW's program page for Tanzania Wildlife Management and Research. For more information on the change, see SFS' announcement. Offered through the School for Field Studies (SFS), the Wildlife Management Studies program is an approved UW affiliate program. On this two-country program, you will compare and contrast the socioeconomic, policy, and environmental drivers and implications of demographic change and land reform for wildlife conservation and rural development between Kenya and Tanzania.

You will be working closely with both IAP and SFS on this program. You can access the program's main information page through the SFS website to learn more about the academics, housing, excursions and activities, and location.
