The Summer Field Study is a 30-day or 35-day, 4-credit, faculty-led immersion program offered in May. Summer Field Study programs seek to enable small groups of students to travel together with a Concordia professor. Program content can include research activity, internships, community-based learning (service learning) and exploratory travel. Students earn credit through an existing Concordia course. Students are immersed in environments that inform the subject of the course. The course offerings for Summer Field Study programs vary in content and academic level. While offerings may have prerequisites, Summer Field Study does not include a required pre-departure course. For some programs, students may take more than 4 credits. Summer Field Study programs are generally designed for groups of less than ten students led by one faculty person.
