Domestic Field Study

Existing Program Planning

Field Study programs at the University of Georgia are expected to undergo an annual program planning process facilitated by the Office of Global Engagement (OGE) in collaboration with the Office of Curriculum Systems. Academic field study courses must be approved and recorded by the Office of the Vice President for Instruction in the CAPA system. Students will be required to travel to destinations within the United States that are remote to the campus of origin. Travel may include tours of museums, archaeological digs, geological or wildlife field sites, etc. where the site constitutes an important resource for instruction. A course that requires only minimal short distance field trips does not qualify.
Field study is considered to be approved course work or programs of study taught at locations other than the main University of Georgia campus in Athens.  Such sites must be approved for instruction but are not required to be a part of a recognized resident center.  Overnight travel may not be required, but the school or college will incur additional costs not typically associated with on-campus instruction, e.g., instructor transportation expenses.
