Program Description:
Turkana Basin InstituteThis field school, offered during both Fall and Spring semesters, is designed for students with an interest in Africa, science, and the essence of what makes us human. The Turkana Basin region, made famous over the past five decades through the work of Richard, Meave and Louise Leakey, has produced much of the world's most important fossil evidence for human evolution. Our program addresses the place that humans occupy in the natural world and how they came to occupy that place. It offers fifteen upper-division or graduate credits in geology, ecology, vertebrate paleontology and paleoecology, human evolution, and archaeology.
