If I plan to go abraod for a semester, and will not be taking Fieldwork I and II during consecutive semesters, when do I apply for a fieldsite?

 Even if you will not be enrolled in Fieldwork II in the semester directly after you take Fieldwork I, submit an application listing your preferences for fieldsite placements while in enrolled in Fieldwork I. On your application, indicate that you will be going abroad. The Fieldwork Director will then let you know whether you should contact potential fieldsites before you go abroad, or whether you should wait until your return before you do so, as this will depend on the particular sites.
