This Environment and Human Health program is run by American University and designed for students whose academic interests are focused on issues to do with the environment and its impact on human health and development. Studies majoring or minoring in Environmental Policy, Environmental Science, Environmental Studies, Anthropology, and Public Health are particularly suited for this program but the program is open to all students with an interest in these areas and who would like the opportunity to engage in a substantial internship or research project while studying abroad.
Students are encouraged to have taken a cross-cultural class before studying abroad in Kenya such as SISA 341 Intercultural Communication, SOCY 100 Sociology of the Global South, or ANTH 110 Culture and the Human Experience, or the equivalent.
NOTE: You need to arrive at the Jomo Kenyatta airport in Nairobi between 5pm-11pm on January 2nd. You must leave the program on April 21st.
** The time it takes to receive an admissions decision varies greatly by program; it can take as little as two weeks or as long as several months. Contact AU Abroad for further details on your program's admissions timeline.
