Field Research Courses

Each summer, the Faculty offers credited courses in several countries. On the ground with your professor and classmates, you attend conferences given by professionals and academics in your host country and visit different local organizations and actors.

These three-week long courses enable you to carry out a field research project under the supervision of your professor. They offer a dynamic way to put what you have learned about research methodologies into practice in the field.
