Studying abroad Guatemala

Is a life-long investment that provides eye-opening, challenging, rewarding, intensive, experiential learning opportunities. It presents students with an occasion to learn not just through textbooks, but also by growing upon an unknown environment. The immersion experience of study abroad allows students to gain perspective on what it means to live in a global community, learn with all of their senses, and to return home with a contextualized vision, education and greater employment opportunities.
