Summer field courses and research in Alaska! – Tatoosh School

The Tatoosh School is a nonprofit, university-level field school with a beachfront base camp on Prince of Wales Island and lecture halls in the towns, oceans, and forests of Alaska’s Inside Passage. It is the school’s mission to foster first-hand learning about the ecology and environmental policy of southern Southeast Alaska.

Rigorous academics focus on the development of a sense of place, a passion for civic engagement and a sound knowledge of the Pacific coastal rainforest. You can earn up to 12 units of credit and leave empowered to explore your surroundings with wide-eyed curiosity and to reach out as an active and informed citizen. Innovative curriculum teaches scientific curiosity and research methods in ways that you can take home and practice, building a field course into a lifelong passion for wild learning.

Tatoosh School students become field scientists and participate in several long-term ecological research programs in collaboration with our partners. Gain invaluable experience and professional connections that can last a lifetime. Take advantage of the opportunity to apply understandings of Southeast’s dynamic terrestrial, riparian, and nearshore marine ecosystems while compiling a data set that supports land managers in their evaluation of the efficacy of restoration techniques as projects progress across the region.
