Fieldwork Applications: New York

It’s been informative and hard work, but at the same time it’s been really fun, like we’ve got to get to know the lecturers a lot better, we’ve got to know all the students a lot better, it’s been quite a bonding session!"

At the end of your second year you may choose to participate in this optional field course to New York City, USA. As a global mega city, New York will provide you with the opportunity to study some of the most pressing social, economic and infrastructural issues faced by the world's most populous urban areas.

You will gain first-hand experience of these issues through meetings with professional organisations working in the field. Key transferable employability skills will be developed when you design and manage your own small-group research project, making use of your growing knowledge of data collection and analysis techniques in the process. You will present the results of your field research  on-site in New York City at the end of the field course.
