About

The Off The Beaten Track summer field school is held annually on the islet of Gozo, one of the three inhabited islands of the Maltese Archipelago in the heart of the Mediterranean. Surrounded by crystal clear waters, Gozo, Malta, enjoys year-round sunshine and is home to numerous natural and cultural treasures.

The Off The Beaten Track program started in 2006 and is now - with 20 editions over the past 11 years - the longest standing anthropology field school in the world.

The program offers a unique opportunity to acquire some 'in the field' experience. The islands present a balance of past and present: rural Mediterranean traditions intersect with foreign influence in small fishing villages. At the crossroads of maritime routes between Europe, Africa and Asia, Malta has always been strategically important. Many cultures have contributed to Maltese and Gozitan culture. Foreign influences can be seen for example in the Maltese language- a fusion of Arabic, Italian and six more languages.
