Field School

Field School

Fieldwork is a major component of anthropological study. It teaches important skills in documenting and understanding local social issues. In a field school, you'll experience first hand the ethical and practical challenges of community-based research with diverse partners.

By joining the field trip to our Pacific neighbour in Fiji, you’ll improve your skills in intercultural communication, field research, research design and mixed methods research, including ethnographic film-making.

You’ll experience the local culture and work on projects with our partners at the University of the South Pacific and the Fiji Museum, and develop a broader view of Australia’s role in the Pacific region. This fieldwork encourages you to think of the economic, social and cultural implications of being a ‘Pacific superpower’.

Escape the hustle and bustle of Australia’s city living next winter and discover what life is like in this beautiful, complex country. Learn about Fiji beyond the beaches and postcard images.
