The ACM Tanzania program offers undergraduates an unusual opportunity to conduct field work in some of the world’s greatest paleoanthropological and ecological sites. Students study and conduct research out of their study center base in the Northern Region of Tanzania.

Students take courses in intensive Swahili, human evolution, and the ecology of the Serengeti while developing a research topic. For the next six weeks, students live in tent camps and pursue individual field projects in the Serengeti/Ngorongoro area before returning to their study center for final work on their projects. The program is both physically and academically demanding, and only well-qualified students are selected.

Recommended preparation includes coursework in biology (including ecology) and anthropology (including human evolution). Coursework that addresses African history and culture is also useful.
Credit: 4.5.
Period: Fall semester.
Program advisors: Professors Jim Mountjoy and Jennifer Templeton.
