Start your memorable Caribbean experience in Bridgetown, the diverse capital and commercial center of Barbados. This tropical island nation boasts white sand beaches, mild weather, and once-in-a-lifetime opportunities, such as shipwreck diving and snorkeling with sea turtles. Unique to this beautiful study location are its variety of rewarding volunteer, mentorship, and fieldwork options. Pairing a special project with coursework, you are sure to get to know the real local community behind the Jewel of the Caribbean. In town, you'll hear the offbeat rhythms of calypso float through the streets of Barbados, once home to Grammy award winner Rihanna. Or join in the cheering as you watch the popular sports of cricket and rugby with a group of welcoming Barbadians.
