The UGA Honors Summer Interdisciplinary Field Program (IFP) operated out of the department of geology is now in its 29th year. This summer’s group of 19 students come from a broad array of majors including geology, anthropology, ecology, engineering, as well as the arts and business.

By the end of this summer they will have covered over 10,000 miles of North American by-ways, dirt roads included.
