Belize: History, Art, and Culture
This life changing educational experience focusing on the Ancient Maya Civilization in Belize is the perfect winter study program to wipe away the winter blues. You will have the opportunity for full cultural immersion and research as you explore the remains and ruins of ancient Mayan archeological sites while learning of the ritual practices and customs of this mysterious civilization. Led by Professor Jeremiah Donovan, recipient of the Chancellors Award for Internationalization, you will be introduced to the ecological wonders of the Tropical Rainforest while experiencing Belizean homegrown hospitality and culture.
The final days of this program will allow you to experience a day of snorkeling on one of the last remaining living Barrier Reefs in the world, off the coast of Belize in the Caribbean Sea. Belize is an English speaking country with Spanish and Mayan often spoken in rural communities.
