This page contains information on the free online Mongolian Studies courses taught in lieu of Field School 2021

Due to the pandemic-related travel restrictions, we are offering a series of online courses throughout 2021 that highlight many of the key topics and instructors who planned to teach in our 2020 Field School.

We're going to resume our regular Field School offerings on-site in Mongolia in 2022, and anyone accepted to the 2020 Field School can defer their acceptance and fellowship awards to 2022.

"Attending the renewable energy field school was the best decision I made in 2019! I was already attending a fulltime graduate program in Canada, but the field school added rich value to my learning. As the world is becoming more globalized, looking at how Mongolia is responding to the challenges of supplying cleaner energy was a valuable experience. Our instructors came with a vast amount of knowledge and a passion to teach.’’

"The ACMS field school is a unique experience that has changed my life and teaching. In most programs, international participants are isolated from the country in which we are studying except for controlled visits to local people and sites. Not so with ACMS! Half of the participants in each field school are from Mongolia, ensuring that local and international participants have a chance to understand each other’s perspectives.’’
