About the Program
  Peru is a melting pot of people, world-recognized cuisine, music and dance from Africa, Asia and Europe, combined with local indigenous populations. Want to get involved in social, economic and political issues through community service and research? Our community-based learning component gives you firsthand experience by working with NGOs.


About Lima

One of the most cosmopolitan and important capitals in South America, Lima is located in a stunningly beautiful setting setting in west central Peru, along the coast of the Pacific Ocean. Among the many things to do in Lima are the local markets featuring beautiful crafts, student friendly entertainment, museums, archaeological sites and architectural treasures. 

Program Benefits
 
  • Study on a 100-acre campus with modern buildings, picturesque gardens and archaeological excavations
  • Take advantage of outstanding academics at one of the highest ranked universities in Latin America where you can find courses that are difficult to find in other Latin American institutions
  • Get involved in Peruvian social, economic and political issues through community service and research with major non-governmental organizations in Lima
  • Archaeology majors can work at Huaca Pucllana, a pre-Incan site from the Lima culture that dates from 0 to 700 AD and is still under exploration
  • You will work with a local NGO throughout the semester as part of the required Peruvian Social Reality course. Available organizations focus on human rights, women's movements, ecology, homelessness and more. 
  • Gender concentration allows students to really dig deeper into social issues in Peruvian society, such as the Ni Una Menos movement
