Field Courses


International Field Courses

Dalhousie’s international field courses are structured, for-credit group learning experiences which take place outside Canada in a location which acts as a ‘home base’ for studies. Teaching focuses on topics which are enhanced by the academic, cultural, or environmental resources of the field course location.
