Field Studies

Perspectives integrates our students’ classroom curriculum with real-world, experiential learning opportunities. We partner with museums, businesses and other organizations as host sites for our Field Studies. Perspectives develop specific curriculum for each Field Study that prepares students for their learning experiences, building on the principles of experiential learning research. We also schedule Community Action projects, where students give back to their communities by volunteering to serve others. Combined, these opportunities help give our students a "big picture" of the world around them and a sense of connectedness to the broader community.
