Turkana Basin Institute-Origins Field School

May 24, 2020 - July 5, 2020


Explore the paleontology, archaeology, and ancient environment of the Lake Turkana Basin, in East Africa’s Rift Valley, made famous by the Leakey family and their colleagues for five decades of groundbreaking research into the origins of humankind.

The Origins Field School is offered as two distinct yet integrative programs: the Semester Abroad program, offered in both the fall and spring, and the Summer Program. You can attend either or both, as the material covered is complementary rather than duplicative. Each offers the academic adventure of a lifetime as you earn upper-level credits studying at TBI’s state-of-the-art campuses in northern Kenya.

Summer Program

  • Dates for the Summer 2020 Program are May 24 to July 5.
  • Earn 9 upper-division credits
  • Open to all majors

The Turkana Basin Institute’s Origins Field Schools are now accepting applications for the 2020 Summer and Fall seasons (we are running the inaugural Geology Field Camp too!).

If anyone has any questions, you can message me or email the field school directly at turkanabasin@stonybrook.edu. Check out our video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xlc-C3KiQ6k
