Galápagos Islands

Synonymous with naturalist Charles Darwin and the theory of evolution, the Galápagos Islands, located about 600 miles west of continental Ecuador in the Pacific Ocean, symbolize a defining moment in the history of life on Earth and the way we see the world and ourselves. This program offers students a unique and unparalleled opportunity to experience and discover the diverse ecology of the archipelago that so enthralled Darwin and to learn about the vital conservation work being done to protect these extraordinary islands and the unique species they are home to.

Social identity & access

One of the best things you can do before departure is enter into the journey knowing that your time abroad will be unique to this experience. The resources, community and support available to you when abroad will likely be different as well. In order to help you prepare for your experience, we have compiled many resources about social identity and access in specific locations abroad. Your program staff will also provide you with more details pre-departure and during orientation.

This program opened my eyes to a culture and society I knew very little about. I made great friends and had a fabulous time during the process. I would do it all over again in a heartbeat.

This program was excellent! AIFS was one of the best experiences of my life.

I would recommend this program to other prospective students. It was well organized with excellent accommodations and wonderful faculty. A once in a lifetime experience!
