Please note that in order to take advantage of dynamic learning opportunities, program excursions may occasionally vary.
Excursions to both rural and urban areas throughout Ecuador link classroom learning to interactions with institutional, community, and individual experiences of development paradigms, discourse practices, and politics.
- In Quito, students will have short site visits including to NGOs and government offices focused on development and politics.
- Students will visit Quichua-speaking villages and also indigenous villages where Shuar or other native languages are spoken.
- The short visit to Guayaquil will provide students with a different city experience and exposure to distinct political issues.
- An excursion to an Amazonian community will present a particularly unique site in which to consider the intersection between language and politics.
