Study abroad in Guatemala

Interested in gaining international learning expertise? Join us in Guatemala over spring break.

The core of Mayan civilization, Guatemala is rich in biodiversity and culture, with spectacular landscapes dotted by volcanoes, ruins and the resplendent quetzal. 

San Martin Jilopeteque is home base. The trip begins with visits to rural villages around Chimaltenango. before spending a few days in beautiful Antigua, a UNESCO world heritage site.

The shorter, more affordable program relative to a full semester abroad requires a 2.5 GPA. 

Rebekka Goodman, faculty director of the program, led the first trip last spring. 

“I had done my first study abroad experience when I was 17 in Guatemala and felt it was a perfect country because of its location,” said Goodman. “It will demonstrate good international development and Guatemala’s positive relationship with the U.S.”

Application deadline for the spring 2017 trip is November 15. Learn more.
