About

Students will be immersed in the rich cultural and historical setting of Mexico, while examining the fundamental concepts of ecology and exploring tropical deciduous forests, temperate forests and arid grasslands surrounding Mexico City - in the midst of the Trans-Mexican Volcanic belt. Students will take BIO 373, an introduction to ecology, the study of relationships between organisms and their environments across many levels of biological organization from individuals to global ecosystems. Students will also take a three-credit course on Mexican Culture and Society, which can be used to meet the College of Natural Sciences foreign language/culture requirement. The program includes visits to important historic and cultural sites around Mexico City such as Cerro Tepozteco, Teotihuacan, and Xochimilco Ecological Park, and an overnight excursion to the pueblo magico of Valle de Bravo.
