Description

GAHDT’s Discovery Field Schools are faculty-led, interdisciplinary, experiential-learning programs offered as one-credit undergraduate courses that take students to domestic destinations to learn about the transformational value of the humanities and the arts. By immersing students in learning environments, field schools aim to close the gap between knowing and doing.
