Additionally, you’ll visit local and international non-governmental organizations, an artist cooperative, neighboring villages, and natural beauty destinations such as the big game parks of Tarangire National Park, Ngorongoro National Park, and Mt. Kilimanjaro National Park.
Projects in recent summers have included research with local residents regarding food insecurity, HIV/AIDS stigma, recycling programs, substance abuse, prenatal health care, and the use of herbal medicines. Students frequently turn their ethnographic field school experiences into presentations at Society for Applied Anthropology annual meetings or senior seminar papers and presentations.
