Field Study Programs

Explore our first-year, spring break, summer, and winter field study programs.

The faculty-led Field Study programs emphasize experiential learning: why just read Shakespeare, when you can see a play performed at the Globe? Why hear a lecture on reforestation, when you can hike through a rainforest to interview staff at a research station? Faculty have designed their Field Study programs to take advantage of the location and have worked to integrate more traditional coursework with hands-on experiences that will enhance the curriculum and provoke discussion and active engagement. 

Most Field Study programs are one week to three weeks long, typically earn two to four credits, and offerings vary from year-to-year. Since these are faculty-led programs, they are normal Rollins courses and appear on your transcript as such. Field Study programs do represent an additional cost. International Programs offers partial need-based scholarship funding to assist with the costs for these programs.
