Program Overview

Program Description:

The Florence Ethnographic Field School is a special kind of study abroad program for students interested in gaining fieldwork experience in a multicultural, European urban center. Ethnographic research (aka “fieldwork”) is qualitative research based on participant-observation within a community. It is a fundamental method of social research, and is central to both anthropology and sociology. Historically, anthropology has been concerned with foreign societies, while sociology focused on urban life; the Florence Ethnographic Field School brings these traditions together by offering an ethnographic fieldwork experience in the heart of one of the world’s archetypal cities.

Setting Description:
Florence is one of the modern world’s original urban centers, making it an ideal site to learn how the participant-observation techniques of ethnographic research are applied to complex social environments.
2700 EUR. Included: tuition, transcript fee, and insurance. Not included: housing, meals, travel.
