The Primatology Field Course is a 4-week introduction to research designed to provide students with a foundation in primate ecology, behavior, and field methodology.

The course is located in a tropical forest which is home to two species of nonhuman primates: mantled howler monkeys (Alouatta palliata) and white-faced capuchin monkeys (Cebus capucinus).

Through lectures, discussions, field exercises, and an independent research project, students will deepen their understanding of the core concepts in primatology and gain experience with common field techniques, while participating in excursions to some of the most successful research stations and conservation organizations the region has to offer.

Costa Rica is home to some of the world's most unique habitats and is one of the most biodiverse, and thus exciting, places to conduct conservation and scientific research.
