Winter Field Project in Development

The third component of the field practice occurs over eight weeks following the 3rd semester.

Having completed the three semesters of coursework as well as learning from the Immersion, Summer internship and Practicums in various courses, the students take up an independent field based work. The work may be a study of specific field level issues resulting in a report, or a presurvey intended to inform the design of a future intervention or an advocacy brief on a particular issue. The field project is based on student’s interests and initiatives that are developed under the guidance of a faculty mentor. The final deliverable can leverage various means of expressions like a photo-essay, a video film, a training manual, a graphic novel, etc.
