Ever wanted to visit Africa? Have an interest in science? Would you like to learn, hands-on, about field research in the Turkana Basin, one of the most remote and interesting areas in Kenya?

For over 40 years, the Leakey family — instructors for parts of this program –have pioneered human prehistory research in this immense and hauntingly beautiful region of Africa’s Great Rift Valley, considered by many to be the “cradle of humanity.”

The Turkana Basin Institute is pleased to offer a full-term Field Education Program at Lake Turkana, in northern Kenya, through Stony Brook University’s Study Abroad program.
