PWP Medellín Deadline: February 20

The deadline to apply for the Medellín PWP is this Friday, 20 February 2015.  This program will start in Bogotá and go on to Medellín to study at the EAFIT university.  In addition to visits to local sites, monuments, and museums, we will take a several-day trip to Cartagena to explore this UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Students take two courses during the seven-week program.  The course taught in Spanish (USC faculty) is based on a Colombian high school civics text and requires a Spanish 220 (or equivalent) level. The second course is taught in English, by Colombian faculty, and focuses on the factors that led to the state of conflict in Medellín and its subsequent resolution.
