The 17,508 islands of the Indonesian archipelago are the home of nearly 250 million people, each of whom have their own distinct cultural identity yet have a strong sense of Indonesian identity. Indonesia supports a wide variety of highly unique flora and fauna that make their home in the temperate climate and fertile soil. The country pursues a moderate, tolerant growth strategy and is the third largest democracy in the world.
The full program will take four weeks, which includes two weeks for each module and a brief field trip to Seribu Islands at the end of the program, where students will have the opportunity to assist with a sea turtle release program and explore the coral reef diversity of Indonesia.
This program aims to provide students with a scientific foundation of information and skills necessary for successfully conducting future graduate studies or obtaining positions with NGO’s and government organizations. Rutgers students will integrate with students and faculty from Universitas Nasional Jakarta (UNAS), thus gaining a very unique educational and cultural experience.
