The six week study abroad session is suitable for students planning to enter the political science professions and who anticipate using Spanish in their careers, such as working in populations with a high percentage of Spanish-speaking residents.
Participants will study two semesters worth of Spanish plus participate in a government/legal exposure seminar in Lima, followed by hands-on volunteer work in community building. A large portion of the Peruvian population lives in poverty, much of them concentrated in Lima’s metropolitan area. Students will be able to use their Spanish and participate firsthand in a local NGO.

Proficiency in Spanish is not required, however we encourage students below intermediate level to come a few weeks early.
