An international field school course is a credit or non-credit course or program offered off campus in another country. Because field schools take place outside the traditional classroom, they supplement your academic training with hands-on experience and offer the opportunity to apply what you've learned in class to practical activities.
Check this page often for a variety of general and program specific field schools opportunities.
