The field school will be located in St. Albert, AB working in collaboration with the Arts & Heritage Foundation of St. Albert and the Métis Nation of Alberta on the grounds of Historic River Lots 23 & 24. The field school will run from May 23rd to June 23rd, 2023. The field school will be full days of work, running Monday through Friday.

The cost of the field school is the cost of a 6-credit course (approximately $1,787) plus an additional fee of $1,000. Please note that this course (ANTH 396) has a prerequisite of ANTH 206, or equivalent course. Instructor Approval is required to enroll in the course.
