Study Abroad Opportunities
The CLAS Seminar and Field Program celebrates its 45th year in 2018 of providing more than 500 students a unique educational and cross-cultural immersion experience since its founding in 1972. For the first time ever, we are pleased to announce the inclusion of the Yucatán Peninsula as the international focal point. While Mexico has been a CLAS destination in the past, this important Mayan region of the country has not. Selected students will be examining the important historical and cultural elements of modern day society that distinguishes the Yucatán significantly from the rest of Mexico. Yes, the Maya are associated with remarkable architectural and astrological accomplishments, though Mayan civilization is not just pyramids—it is a thriving civilization that is very much alive and well today.
