Study Abroad in Tanzania

Experience adventures camping in the Serengeti or backcountry expeditioning in the rainforest and earn psychology or kinesiology credit through Lone Star College-CyFair’s 2014 Study Abroad Tanzania and Costa Rica programs.

Psychology professors Lori Richter and Davida Rodgers are returning to Africa in June with students interested in exploring risk and resilience among orphans and vulnerable children in Tanzania. While immersed in a vibrant and diverse culture, students will help children in need and earn credit in both Lifespan Growth and Development (PSYC 2314) and Social Psychology (PYSC 2319) classes.

Kinesiology professor Ronnie Nespeca will return to Costa Rica in May with students to explore the Costa Rican jungles, cloud forests and mangrove swamps. This study abroad program will focus on developing specialized, extended travel techniques in an international destination. Students will earn credit for the Backcountry Expeditioning I (KINE 1172) mini-mester course.

LSC-CyFair’s 2014 Study Abroad Programs: Destination Tanzania and Costa Rica are open to students from all Lone Star campuses. Applications are accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis and programs are expected to fill, so submit applications as soon as possible.
