Off the Beaten Track Summer School for Anthropology


Gozo (Malta) – Europe

Session 1: June 5 – June 24, 2018
Session 2: July 2 – July 21, 2018
Session 3: July 29 – August 17, 2018

About the Summer School
The Off The Beaten Track program started in 2006 and is now – with 24 editions over the past 12 years – the longest standing anthropology field school in the world. Our basecamp is located on the islet of Gozo, one of the three inhabited islands of the Maltese Archipelago in the heart of the Mediterranean. The program offers a unique opportunity to acquire ‘in the field’ experience. The islands present a balance of past and present, where rural Mediterranean traditions intersect with foreign influence in small villages.

The Malta Summer School international faculty and staff help connect students and locals. They facilitate and monitor the progress of each student’s project and guide all interested participants through the process of publishing the results of their research. The program is residential and conducted in English.

The participants
The field school is directed towards young anthropologists and cultural scientists; however, any individual who would like to learn about anthropological research and fieldwork is welcome. Previous knowledge or experience is not required. We aim for an individually tailored program that can start at any level. Even PhD research (or pre-research) can be included and guided. The school has a strong socio-cultural focus, but any topic can be covered in the individual program of the student. Each session has a maximum of 16 participants with a 2:1 student to staff ratio. Places are confirmed on a first-come, first-served basis to suitably qualified candidates.

The tuition fee is 3,250.00 euros.

This fee includes:
• Full Board (accommodation, food, drinks)
• All program related activities
• Official Attendance certificate and transcript
• Supervision with fieldwork analysis and in the write-up stages

How to apply
Full details of the International Summer School including how to apply and entry requirements can be found at: http://anthropologyfieldschool.org/page8/index.html

Rolling admissions, with a maximum of 16 participants per session. Spaces usually fill up by the beginning of December.
