Chatham Field Experiences

The Chatham Field Experiences offers eligible Chatham undergraduate students international study and travel as an integral part of their Chatham degree program.

To be eligible, students must have completed 30 undergraduate credits at the time of travel, 15 of which must have been completed at Chatham, and not have any academic, discipline or financial holds. Students must be in good academic standing at time of application and prior to program departure.

Chatham Field Experiences are academic courses focused on interdisciplinary topics, taught by Chatham faculty during the summer term. The courses, topics, and foreign sites vary from year to year, depending on faculty interests and experiences, the global economy, and current international political conditions.

The cost for the field experiences is based on location and other variables such as excursions, food, etc. Students may use their study abroad voucher toward the program costs.
