Charles Darwin made an evolutionary breakthrough here.

Now you too can take the study abroad trip of a lifetime to Ecuador's Galápagos Islands-and even spend time studying its famous finches and tortoises just like Darwin did.

Located 620 miles from the South American coast, this volcanically active island archipelago is one of the earth's natural treasures-home to plant and animal species not found anywhere else.

Amid the beauty of San Cristobal, Santa Cruz, and Isabela, you'll see social and natural science collide in evolution, gender identity, globalization, sustainability and more.

You'll get real-life experience in the field in this living laboratory, studying how development, environment, tourism and community have impacted these small islands, which up until 2010 were listed as a world heritage danger sites.
