The Wild Rockies Field Institute (WRFI) is an off-campus study opportunity, offering academic field-based courses through the University of Montana. Our courses take place in the “WildRockies” of North America and combine rigorous academic inquiry with cultural immersion and extended backcountry expeditions. WRFI’s small group size and interdisciplinary curriculum offer students an exceptional opportunity to complement their coursework on campus with experiential education in the field. Scholarships available! 

WRFI is currently accepting applications for summer and semester courses. Interested in learning more? Stop by our first-ever UC Berkeley info session this Tuesday 4/24 from 4-5pm in 260 Mulford Hall with WRFI instructor and current UC Berkeley graduate student Rachel Woods-Robinson! There will be FREE PIZZA!
