Course Description

The International Field Program (IFP) is a platform for emerging practitioners and researchers to gain experience in the field within an academic environment. The IFP is designed to extend learning beyond the classroom. Students get firsthand field exposure to a multiplicity of perspectives, ideas, and people through orientation, field trips, guest speakers, professional internships, faculty-supervised projects and research, and day-to-day interactions. In the course of nine weeks, students work and conduct research with community-based organizations, NGOs, international organizations, and governmental agencies. The topics range from social and economic rights, urban and community development, monitoring and evaluation, new media and technology, environmental justice, migration and refugees, governance, conflict, and peacebuilding. The IFP is open to master's and PhD students, undergraduates (rising juniors and seniors), and continuing education professionals from all fields and areas of study. The program is open to both New School students and applicants from other universities.

Application and admission into the International Field Program is required to take this course. For more information, send an email to ifp@newschool.edu or submit an application on our website: International Field Program

The objective of the Cuba International Field Program is to provide students with a unique research-oriented experience in which lectures and interactions with peers from different countries provide students with a more in-depth understanding of global problems at play in a specific context. By studying the emergence of neoliberal practices in an allegedly market-less economy, of class and race disparity in a purportedly classless and post-racial society, and of gender equality in a highly gendered reality, students will acquire a political grammar that will make them a better citizen of their own country. Due to the pandemic, the summer IFP could be facilitated through virtual arrangements if necessary. Application and admission into the International Field Program is required to take this course.

The Balkans International Field Program examines the dynamic between security and society with particular attention to issues of identity and migration along the Balkan route. It traces the physical, political, legal, social, and economic terrain that structures and defines the interactions between various actors along one of the main historic migration paths. As we shift our gaze from the Turkish Aegean coast, from one island ""hot spot"" to another, across Greece, Bulgaria, Serbia, and Bosnia, we engage with histories of empires and their collapse, ancient and more recent migration flows, and the cultural sediment they have left behind. Student research agendas, internships, and media projects are arranged along several thematic axes connected to broader topics of security and society; human rights and democratic governance; identity relationships, the conversations and the conflicts they spark, and the actors that make claims about them; migration, refugee issues, and policies; EU and regional politics; and the built environment, camps, spaces of confinement, and the paths and actors of mobility, as well as the institutional and legal structures and the dominant discourses that frame these topics. Due to the pandemic, the summer IFP could be facilitated through virtual arrangements if necessary. Application and admission into the International Field Program is required to take this course.

The International Field Program India/Nepal in summer 2021 will focus on the theme Social Justice for Dignity and Equity: Learning with Dalits. This innovative program will provide distinct collaborative learning opportunities for understanding challenges and efforts in addressing the persistence of caste-based indignities, injustices, and inequities that affect more than 240 million Dalits worldwide. The program is three weeks each in India and Nepal, and will convene intensive workshops with esteemed scholars, experts, and community-based Dalit changemakers to expand students’ knowledge, networks, and professional skills. Focused on Dalits’ lived experiences, this field program will address select policy questions and debates in India and Nepal. Part of the purpose is also to examine larger connections to debates on intersectionality of race, caste, gender, and class.
