Field-based: A straight slate of classes is offered to all participants along a topic or theme that relates to the host location. Experiential learning “in the field” connects experiences to the academic topics. Frequently culminates in an independent study developed by the student. Mostly focused on the natural and social sciences, program size tends to be small and English-taught (though not always) and involve regional or international travel relating to the core theme. There will be a US based contact to coordinate with, as well as facilities on the ground.
