Aims/Description: The East Asian Fieldwork module provides students with an opportunity to conduct field-based research in an East Asian context. Building on pre-departure preparatory lectures and seminars in Sheffield with a focused period of in-country activities, students will develop fieldwork skills and experience working within a cross-cultural and cross-linguistic environment.

Restrictions on availability: Where a student transfers onto EASU02 having already completed a year abroad in their previous degree programme, they will not be eligible to take this module. This module will only be available where a student has been unable to complete EAS2000.

Teaching Methods: Lectures, Tutorials, Fieldwork, Independent Study
Assessment: Course work, Project/ portfolio
