Field Work | Archival Studies
3 credits of fieldwork is a requirement for the Archival Studies Concentration.* Fieldwork students must have completed 650 before arranging a fieldwork opportunity. Fieldwork is generally taken for 3 credits during any semester.

Please submit all forms and questions to firstname.lastname@example.org
After the fieldwork forms are submitted Archives Program staff will contact the repository to ask for confirmation if they can host the student and to formally approve the fieldwork project(s). Once the repository is confirmed Archives Program staff will send an email introducing the student and Field Supervisor to each other. The student also must submit the SOIS Fieldwork Placement Form as soon as possible after receiving the introductory email.
During fieldwork students will be expected to post on the Fieldwork D2L site. Specific instructions will be given to the student at the beginning of the semester. Students and Field Supervisors must complete a fieldwork evaluation at the conclusion of the fieldwork.
