Study Abroad Oportunities

Seminar and Field Trip

Bolivia will be the focus of the Center for Latin American Studies' 2014 Seminar and Field Trip. With more than 10 million people, two thirds of whom identify as indigenous, Bolivia provides an exciting opportunity to learn about the social movements, indigenous politics, and political transitions that have emerged across the region in recent years. The 10 to 15 students selected to participate will spend six weeks in May and June of 2014 studying and living with a host family in Cochabamba, a city located in central Bolivia. The students will first enroll in a spring semester-long preparatory seminar and then travel to Bolivia where they will conduct an independent field project, earning six credits applicable toward the CLAS certificate upon completion of the program.
