CEP Field Sites: Connecting Our Work to the World

To advance our missions in undergraduate education, environmental research and community outreach, the CEP has established a network of field sites with locations in North Carolina and foreign countries such as Thailand and Austria. The field site program is coordinated through the Study Abroad Office of the College of Arts and Sciences. Each site focuses on themes specific to that community or region and provides a semester-long opportunity for students to explore real-world issues through a combination of course work, field trips, group research projects and internships with local organizations. Challenges facing host communities help shape the curriculum at each site, and the results of research by UNC-Chapel Hill faculty and students are shared with community partners.

The UNC Study Abroad Office in the College of Arts and Sciences coordinates applications for attendance at all CEP field sites. The Study Abroad Office has set an annual February 15 deadline for applications. To apply to a specific field site, click on Apply Now by its name below:
