Field School Experience

Field School Experience

The Department of History & Global Studies is offering a unique course that allows students to apply their skills in the real world through hands on experience in history field work.

This summer, 2016, students will have the opportunity to travel to Weathersfield, England to live and study in a village that was closely tied to WWII. Students will have the opportunity to engage with the community through interviews and oral histories, and to create a lasting record of their stories. This is an incredible opportunity to document original histories, and speak one on one with those who experienced WWII first hand.



  • This opportunity is open to ALL majors, regardless of previous history coursework
    •       Priority will be given to students in the History & Global Studies departments, but all applications will be considered.
  • Must be in good academic standing at ACU
  • 3.0 GPA
