Based in the beautiful, historic city of Antigua and surrounding village communities, students will be placed with local Guatemalan host families and enjoy in-country excursions under the guidance of Students International — our Guatemalan partner organization — to places such as Tikal National Park, home of the "lost city" of the ancient Mayan civilization.
This 15-credit program immerses students in the Central American country of Guatemala. Students will:
- Choose between two 5-credit exploratory curriculum classes, each taught with a Guatemala "twist" by SPU faculty!
- Gain experiential education and applied skills while working with Students International staff and local Guatemalan citizens.
- Study Spanish one-on-one at Centro Linguistico Maya, with evaluation directed by SPU language faculty, while working toward satisfying SPU's language proficiency requirement.
