Courses and Academic Credit

All UW students accepted to the program are required to complete the program preparation course, Psych 494: Field Study in Animal Behavior ("International Field Study Program-Indonesia Seminar") (3 credits) offered during the 2014 spring quarter at the University of Washington.
During the program in Indonesia, undergraduate students will be expected to participate in the program courses including Psych 494: Field Study in Animal Behavior ("Field Course in Conservation Biology & Global Health: At the Human-Environment Interface") (3 credits), and Psych 499: Undergraduate Research: ("Field Research in Indonesia") (4 credits). The Psych 499 course can be tailored to meet the student's specific interests and area of study.
Graduate students may choose to participate in Psych 494 ("Field Course in Conservation Biology & Global Health: At the Human-Environment Interface") or concentrate solely on Field Research (Psych 599/600, Directed/Independent Research, credits TBA).  As with Psych 499, Psych 599/600 can be tailored to meet the student's interests and area of study.

NOTE: Because of the timing of the overseas portion of this program, UW students have two options for course registration:

  1. Students may register for the program courses during the summer quarter 2014 and receive an "X" (no grade reported at this time). The regular grade will be entered following the return of the Program Director.

  2. Students may register for the courses during the fall quarter 2014.
