Field Study

 

field class in AustraliaMuch of your learning will take place outside of the classroom on a field study program. Field study can include a wide variety of research methods, ranging from culturally-acceptable interviewing techniques to quantitative data collection.

Things to Consider:

  • Highly interactive learning
  • Focus on a specific academic theme
  • Opportunity to produce original research for an honors thesis or complete an internship/practicum
  • Learn practical quantitative and qualitative research methods in both the human and physical sciences
  • Abstract concepts discussed in a classroom setting can be explored in practical ways in the field
  • Often you will be in an "island" setting where you are only in classes with other U.S. students
  • Often everyone on the program will take the same courses
  • You may have little time for independent travel on the weekends
