Register to participate in a virtual information session.

 In this rigorous field study, you will travel to London, England, during the first two weeks of May to access resources unavailable in the United States and to enrich your independent spring and summer term-long research.

Participants will be immersed in an innovative urban center—the most populous capital of Western Europe and one of the world’s global cities—as well as a community of their peers, undergraduates dedicated to independently designed research projects. The city of London and the Field Studies program empower you to not only improve your research project, but also to see it and yourself in an international context.

In pre- and post-trip meetings with your peers, you also will discuss the thematic similarities and differences between your diverse projects. While you will conduct the majority of your study independently, at locations decided by you and a faculty mentor, planned cultural activities and daily group discussions will enhance your project.

“The London Field Studies trip challenged me to work independently and outside of my comfort zone. The trip broadened my understanding of what I’ve been learning in the classroom and really helped me to expand my interests in a real-world setting.” — Blair Wegescheide (Architectural Studies and Urban Studies)
