For nearly four decades, SFS has been teaching students about environmental issues in local contexts around the world.
During SFS programs, much of the classroom is found in the world outside. The interdisciplinary academic schedule consists of field trips, field work, field lectures, and classroom lectures. Working with our permanent, full-time faculty team, students gain a deeper, more nuanced understanding of complex environmental issues.
