These short-term programs offer an excellent and affordable opportunity for students interested in field-based extensions to on-campus courses. Students enroll for selected courses on campus in the winter or fall terms and then travel (2-4 weeks) with classmates to a field site where they can put into practice or experience what they have learned. Students receive an  additional 1-2 credits for the projects they complete on site. Registration for the field study component requires permission from the instructor. Recent courses have taken students to observe labor practices on the Mexican border, experience Thai culture related to their language study, and look at social conditions in contemporary South Africa. These courses are offered through their home departments. Consult the CGIS website for course details.
