Description:
This course is the introductory course for the summer International Field Program (IFP). The IFP provides practical field experiences through work/research with NGOs, international organizations, government and local agencies, as well as builds a unique link between classroom curriculum and ongoing research in the world of practice. Students are placed in-country and engage in an internship or conduct applied research, where they explore specific questions and problems from a theoretical standpoint. The program offers students the opportunity to develop a set of foundational tools and critical thinking skills for conducting fieldwork, applied research, and contextual analysis. Students will also evaluate institutions, identify forces affecting specific problems, and competently assess local issues in light of comparative experiences. The goal of the IFP is to prepare students to become critical, innovative practitioners in the field of international affairs through a substantive, transformative experience.
