International Teaching & Research Opportunities

Research Funding Through Arts & Science International Programs

  • The Research Excursions Program (REP 398H/Y Courses) gives small groups of second- and third-year students the opportunity to contribute to faculty research in an off-campus setting, in Canada or abroad. These group projects are based on experiential learning and are supervised by an A&S faculty member.
  • The Dean’s International/Indigenous Initiatives Fund (DIIF) supports the development of new and creative international activities in areas of need not already addressed by existing programming. The goal is to provide a broad range of international and Indigenous opportunities for A&S students.

International Field Courses

International field courses enable students to conduct independent research in unique settings that can't be replicated in Canada. Many A&S academic units offer field courses for their undergraduates on a regular basis. 

Consult your chair or program director to find out how field courses are developed in your unit. You can also contact us to discuss your ideas about developing international field courses.
