Field Placements

Through field courses and field schools, students will integrate knowledge learned in the classroom with hands-on experience and focused skill-building in an out-of-classroom environment. Including site visits with a field work component into courses can be a particularly helpful way for those in the sciences to engage experiential learning. Moving lab-based work outside has benefits for interdisciplinary engagement and can provide a means of knowledge mobilization with the surrounding community.

The University of Winnipeg offers a variety of field placement opportunities across many departments.
