About The Program

Ready for adventure? Got a research topic in mind? Take your curiosity and ideas to Mexico, where a diverse population, rich ecology, and fascinating history provide compelling possibilities for research. Courses in field research methods, Mexican culture, and Spanish language in Mexico City combined with mentors set you up for success. Present your findings during a trip to Cuetzalan, a town in a mountainous area near waterfalls and pyramid ruins. This is a research experience that can set you apart when pursuing a career. Program trips may include a visit to the pyramids of Teotihuacan, a performance of Ballet Folklórico, or the mountain getaway of Malinalco.
