About

Based in Cuzco, Peru—perhaps the most storied city in South America—this program examines the history and culture of the Andean region from pre-Columbian times to the present. While our emphasis will be historical, the program will examine topics and themes from a variety of fields including geography, archeology, ethnomusicology, anthropology, literature, and environmental studies. Readings and lectures will be complemented by various trips, including a three-day trip to Machu Picchu and optional excursions to Lake Titicaca and the Amazon basin. Visits to Inca ruins, lectures by leading specialists, and discussion of contemporary Peru will increase students’ understanding of the region and its people. Optional Spanish and Quechua lessons will be available.
