Mongolia Field School Program

All Field School courses begin in Ulaanbaatar with an orientation to Mongolian culture, history, language and contemporary issues. Participants will meet with their instructors and classmates from Mongolia and around the world, and begin their learning journey. Class groups will then travel to selected sites across Mongolia where they will pursue field research, gaining an understanding of the topics studied in the context of the landscapes and people in the regions visited.
