Description
The Thailand Field School is an 11-week (late May-early August) ethnographic research training program, which will take place in an ethnic minority sub-district in Northern Thailand where Hmong, Mien, Lua, and Northern Thais reside. The goal of this program is to give students mentored research field experience. Students will conduct field work on their individual projects under the mentorship of the directing faculty, or may work to collect and analyze data on the directing faculty’s current research projects. Students will also receive in-field training on ethnographic research design and methods. This program is based in the BYU Anthropology Department. Students receive 9 credits of research-oriented coursework. This program can accommodate both undergraduate and graduate students.
