There is no comparison to real-world field experience.
In wildlife refuges, field stations, animal hospitals or out in the rainforest, learn alongside working experts in settings no classroom can match. Explore topics in conservation and animal science, and then see them come to life during hands-on activities and research. You’ll be given unique access to learn from some of the world’s top veterinarians, conservationists and biologists. Best of all, practice putting new skills to use in real situations. Help rehabilitate endangered species and reintroduce them into the wild. Gain practical experience in animal care, preventive medicine and surgery. Study native wildlife behavior in the Amazon and Galápagos. The skills you build will stay with you throughout your future academic pursuits and beyond.
