About Us

The Field Studies was launched with the idea in mind of creating a helpful resource for both the study abroad crowd and the worldwide traveler in general. Our goal is to become the go-to-resource for all things international travel by providing useful and compelling content and consolidating it all in one location for the convenience of our readers. From university exchange programs to foreign culinary delights to must-see architectural wonders, we aim to cater to those students, parents and travelers looking for something just a bit different than what you’d normally find in the typical travel magazine.

College Campus

We here at The Field Studies are strong proponents of experiencing life and living your experiences. We’re all for the academic and cultural immersion that  the international study experience affords. We also believe that educational “vacations” do not begin nor end with traditional study abroad programs. Field-based learning is something that can and should continue well into one’s later life. Our mission is to point the spotlight at both the well-known and some lesser-known study abroad locales that can also double as vacation hotspots for those interested in immersing themselves in a foreign culture.

  • Gain a new perspective of the world via deep cultural immersion and worldwide community engagement
  • Increase your foreign language skills and learn to flourish in a new and exciting environment
  • Discover or rediscover where you interests truly lie both personally and academically
  • Gain a more nuanced understanding and greater respect for other cultures, political and economic systems

Study Abroad

Whether you’re a student contemplating an overseas curriculum, a parent of a curious college student or just a traveler with a penchant for personal exploration, The Field Studies aims to meet all of your needs. From exciting articles about can’t miss London pub food to an essay about what to expect while studying abroad in Spain or even a blog posting regarding a must see cultural attraction in Ireland, we’ll do our best to cover it all.

We thank you for taking the time to visit our website and we hope you’ll continue to come back for more. Should you have any questions, comments or suggestions, please feel free to contact us by using our provided contact form. We would also love to hear from you if you’re interested in writing for our site (guest posting) or would like to advertise with us.

We urge you to experience your life and live your experiences…
