Tajikistan is an extraordinary academic case study, whether you are interested in geology and the environment, languages and archeology, economics and politics, or more or less anything else. The Soviet fence that existed for much of the 20th century means that the country is largely undiscovered by those in the West, especially as there is limited information available on the Internet in English, and hence it is an ideal, exciting destination for any academic field trip.
There’s no good just turning up and expecting to discover Tajikistan, however. To get the most out of your visit, and ensure your students optimise their time and effort, you need expert support on the ground. Paramount Journey works with leading academics, including foreign professors, to plan and lead field trips, whatever your area of study.
Our two principle academic expedition leaders are a Professor of Physical Geography with extensive experience and knowledge of the region; and a Doctor of Ecology with hands-on experience of the They are supported by the Paramount Journey management team, who will make your trip safe and comfortable, eliminating any bureaucratic or logistical hurdles. We already have prepared a vast range of field book research materials, including a handbook written by the Paramount Journey expedition leaders, and would be delighted to share these with you.
If you are a member of staff interested in organising field trips for your students, contact our expedition leader, Dr. Prof. Michael Richter, for more details.
If you an independent student and you would like to make such trip the basis of your thesis, then you can contact us and we will tell you what we can do to assist you.
