A student studying abroad with IES Abroad Galápagos Islands January Term - Marine Ecosystems
February 09, 2019 The Trip Of A Lifetime!
This program taught me so much about myself, my place in the world, and the importance of preserving our environment. I also learned that cultures around the world are more similar and interconnected than we typically think them to be and that plantains are an incredibly versatile food! - Wellesley College View Entire Review

About

There’s no place in the world quite like the Galápagos Islands. Located 600 miles off the coast of Ecuador, these 3.5-million-year-old islands are home to some of the rarest species on the planet, and are where Charles Darwin first formulated his Theory of Natural Selection. Studying abroad here with us allows you to discover the incredible beauty and biodiversity of the Galápagos Islands that has captivated famous scientists and world travelers for decades. This three-week January Term is perfect for students interested in Marine Ecology and Environmental Studies. You’ll study at the Galápagos Academic Institute for the Arts and Sciences (GAIAS) on the island of San Cristóbal. This remote campus of the Universidad San Francisco de Quito was established to further efforts in conservation and sustainable development on the Galápagos Islands.
