About

During this winter study abroad, we spend eight days in the Yucatan Peninsula and the final four days in Mexico City. In the Yucatan, we explore the famous Mayan archaeological sites of Chichen Itza and Uxmal, the markets & neighborhoods of Merida and Campeche, surrounding pueblos, the ecological reserve of Celestun, a beautiful beach village, and two natural Maya cenotes (swimming pools). In Mexico City, excursions include the Historic Center, the original artwork of Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo, the National Anthropological Museum & Chapultepec Castle, the city’s rich and diverse markets & neighborhoods, the Aztec Templo Mayor, and the famous temples of Teotihuacan. The program concludes with a farewell dinner and surprise cultural outing.  Throughout, we employ a “Place as Text” teaching methodology, which inserts students into social environments and fosters close observation of the local culture.
