Institute for Global Studies – Institute Of Cultural Ecology was founded on the conviction that visits to exotic destinations imply a commitment to cultural sensitivity and environmental stewardship.
Our programs match the interests, academic goals, and passions of the participant to select host organizations and researchers.
Once you connect with a place and its people, they become a part of you. Forever.
“Creative,” “colorful,” “exciting” . . .
this is the feedback we continually get from our Marine Research projects. IGS is the industry leader in this area and has been placing students in high end marine projects in Hawaii, Fiji, Australia, New Zealand, Thailand and the mainland USA since the 1990’s.
We have run semester-long university field studies that have featured turtle research in Hawaii, reef monitoring in Fiji and Great Barrier Reef fish and coral studies in Australia. In short, you have come to the right place for marine studies!
Our projects pair the individual with university research statins, eco-tourism, aquariums, sea parks, dive shops among other organizations with the goal of creating a high quality learning experience.
