Summer field schools
Field schools bring students into landscapes, urban fabrics and lives of others across the globe. Field schools are more than study trips – they are intensive, place-based classrooms or studios with carefully structured courses. Students become translators of experience, interpreters of culture, manipulators of material and ambassadors of their field of study — both on site and when they return home.
