The program options are: Tropical Rainforest Studies (semester), Summer Session I: Rainforest Management Studies, Summer Session II: Techniques for Rainforest Research. On these programs, you will understand the dynamics of rainforest ecosystems, including potential impacts of global climate change, and in turn develop rainforest restoration strategies that benefit both ecosystems and human communities.

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