Advisor: Dr. Jodi Sedlock

The ACM field research program is designed primarily for advanced students wishing to pursue a significant field-based independent research project. This research may be in the humanities, social sciences, or sciences. Students prepare for their research during a month-long orientation that includes intensive language training and a review of fieldwork methodology. The research may be integrated with an ongoing project at Lawrence or started afresh on the program.

Students who will be juniors or seniors with prior coursework in the proposed research discipline are eligible. Familiarity with statistics, field work methodology, and research methods is recommended. At least two years of college Spanish (or the equivalent) is required
