Faculty Research & Teaching

The Field Museum Semester offers opportunities to faculty at ACM member institutions.

Teaching on the Program

Each fall, a visiting faculty member is on-site for the entire semester. Faculty members from ACM colleges are eligible to apply and have the opportunity to lead the semester while teaching one course for an interdisciplinary group of students. Additionally, the visiting faculty member will be able to conduct independent research at the Field Museum. For additional information, please see the application information or email
