About the ProgramMexico - Coba or Merida 2

Students who are enrolled in the Fall Semester 2018 ANT 315-02 "Language and Culture" course have the opportunity to travel to Mexico with the instructor, Dr. Stephanie Litka, during the January intersession. Students on this program abroad will travel to Merida, Mexico in the Yucatan, where we will be hosted by our partner university, Universidad Marista de Merida. Scheduled activities in Marista include guest lectures, city and university tours, and visits to local sites of interest. The group will also travel to Valladolid, Coba, Playa del Carmen, and Chichen Itza.  The program is designed to extend the learning that students will do throughout the fall semester course, allowing for an experiential and intercultural opportunity for students.
