Field Studies

Can be taken as: Minor

Field studies offer students a chance to put theory into practice through local, regional, and international field study semesters and individual courses. Field Study Semesters are packages of McGill courses aimed at upper-year students that focus on the physical and social aspects of the environment. They are offered in various regions around the world in the Fall or Winter term. Currently, Field Study Semesters are offered in East Africa (Kenya, Uganda and/or Tanzania: Africa Field Study Semester), Barbados (Barbados Field Study Semester; Barbados Interdisciplinary Tropical Studies Field Semester), and Panama (Panama Field Study Semester). Enrolment is limited. Students participating in any one of the field study semesters may complete the 18-credit Minor in Field Studies. McGill's field study opportunities provide practical experience and a chance to integrate and apply knowledge gained in the classroom.
