Field Schools

Field schools are offered in the Summer, Fall and Spring terms, with destinations varying from year to year.

A Field School can be described as an extended field trip, or an off-campus delivery of SFU courses for a group of 10 - 20 students. Most Field Schools are full term programs, directed by an SFU instructor, consisting of 9 to 12 units of selected courses.

On a field school you will undertake a combination of coursework, assignments, and field studies intended to integrate learning with the location. Generally, programs begin at an SFU campus and then continue overseas. You will pay a program fee which covers most of the in-country costs of the program.
