Local Student Gets Unique Learning Experience Through Monmouth-Six Flags Collaboration
First-Ever Higher Education Collaboration Between Monmouth University and Six Flags Wild Safari Offers Students Unique Learning Experience
Monmouth University student Christina Green from Manalapan, N.J. interacts with a towering giraffe during her Field Experience: Six Flags Wild Safari course. The upper-level class introduces students to the psychological theories and principles used to shape animal behaviors and how these principles can be applied to their own career and life. It is being offered for the first time this spring as part of a unique educational collaboration between Monmouth University and Six Flags Great Adventure. In addition to class meetings, library research and journaling, students have supervised exposure to animals, including a 90-pound albino Burmese python, bottlenose dolphins, African elephants and rhinoceros’.
