International Field Studies Open House scheduled for Nov. 8

Brigham Young University’s International Study Programs will hold an International Field Studies Open House on Thursday, Nov. 8, from 2 to 5 p.m. in 238 Herald R. Clark Building.

International Field Studies is a semester-abroad experience for students of all majors who are interested in self-directed research in a cross-cultural setting. At the open house, students who have completed a field study will explain the specifics of each program and answer questions. Refreshments will be provided.

Administered through the David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies, field study programs are sponsored by colleges and departments across campus. Locations for these programs include Ghana, Guatemala, India, Italy, Mexico, Patagonia, South Africa, rural Europe and the Navajo Nation.

The field study experience is flexible, allowing many students to conduct research for an honors thesis or to fulfill field requirements for individual majors.

For more information on International Field Studies, contact the ISP office, 280 HRCB, call 422-3686, e-mail isp@byu.edu or visit kennedy.byu.edu/isp.
