FUTURE-FOCUSED STUDY ABROAD

Mexico

Mexico is close to home but a world away. As a student in one of our Mérida programs, you will study in the capital of the state of Yucatan. You’ll visit amazing Mayan sites such as Chichén Itzá and Uxmal – deepening your understanding of one of the main pre-Hispanic civilizations of the world and one of the most culturally diverse regions of Mexico. While Mérida is home to the Mayans, modern Merida is the result of the mixture of Spaniards and Mayans, combined with European and Asian migrations.
