About our Field School programs
The Turkana Basin Institute offers an extraordinary, full-semester field school program in Kenya. At the Origins Field School, students can earn 15 upper-division Stony Brook credits studying in the very place the Leakey family and their colleagues have made, and continue to make, unprecedented discoveries in the field of human prehistory.
No other set of courses will give you an experience like this. So when the Spring semester begins in January, and your fellow students are braving snow and freezing rain, you could be studying and learning outdoors in warm, sunny Kenya.
For more information, including how to apply, please visit KenyaStudyAbroad.org or call the office of the Turkana Basin Institute at (631) 632-5800.
