Centers for Interamerican Studies: Semester in the Andes
The Semester in the Andes is unique in that it combines an extended experience in one city—Cuenca, Ecuador—with a considerable amount of travel in the Andes including the Ecuadorian Amazon basin, the Galapagos Islands, and Machu Picchu in Peru. The program provides opportunities for students to study a range of topics in Latin America. The semester is divided into two academic terms, allowing students to begin with intensive Spanish courses and then choose from several options: further language courses, an internship or service learning project, or courses from several academic disciplines taught in either English or Spanish by an international faculty.
Cost: See www.cedei.org for fees for each program.
Dates: Annually, January-May and September-December(see website for exact dates.)
