What are you doing in summer 2015?

We’re planning field schools in China, Italy, Mexico, Switzerland and more, and you’re invited!

Field schools are seven weeks and usually take place from April to July. Courses are taught by Douglas instructors and, depending on the program, an instructor from one of our partner institutions.

Virtually all field school courses are university transferable.

You’ll spend part of the program studying at Douglas before travelling overseas with your instructors and classmates to complete the program at one of our partner institutions.

To be eligible, you must be:

  • a Douglas College student eligible to take the courses offered in the field school. Qualified students from other institutions are welcome to apply but must first gain admission to Douglas College. 
  • 18 years of age or older prior to departure 
  • in good academic standing with a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 by application deadline. If you do not meet this requirement, you can only attend a field school with the approval of the program's lead faculty member. 
  • a passport holder or able to obtain a passport

$2,100-$3,650 per student, depending on the program. Includes airport transfers overseas, use of facilities at the partner institution, tuition for course taught by partner institution, program field trips, shared accommodations, most meals (depending on the program) and travel medical insurance.

Airfare, passport application costs, fees for Douglas College courses, airport transfers in Vancouver, textbooks and personal spending are extra.
