VIU Anthropology Fieldtrip: Peru 2000 - Descent from the archaeological site of Pisac.

Peru - Descent from the archaeological site of Pisac.

The Department of Anthropology regularly provides students an opportunity for study abroad as a 9-credit field school. The courses (all upper-level) offered depend on the location and the faculty member coordinating and overseeing the curriculum, who brings their particular expertise to the program (such as, language skills and research interest). Field schools typically are scheduled during May-June and last from four to six weeks. Some course work occurs prior to departure.

If funding your education abroad is a concern, consider some funding options identified by International Education. Depending on eligibility, you may be able to apply for a loan from StudentAid BC.

One international field school to China, including Macau and Hong Kong, is proposed for May 2019 by Dr. Imogene Lim with Dr. Pam Shaw, Geography. A total of 6-credits is available: ANTH 363. Geography majors/minors will receive the equivalent credits for GEOG courses.  Click here for a pdf of tentative itinerary, costs, and considerations. Contact Dr. Lim or Dr. Shaw, or Jennifer Sills, Study Abroad Manager, to express interest.  To be considered, application forms (pdf) must be submitted by November 9, 2018.

International field schools are administered by VIU's Education Abroad Office. For general information, contact Jennifer Sills, Study Abroad Manager,
