You will spend your summer in the southern Mexican state of Oaxaca, studying with UTSA students and faculty as you learn about Mexican history and develop your Spanish. All students will take the three-credit interdisciplinary course, Indigenous Peoples and the State, taught by a UTSA faculty member. Your other three credits will be a Spanish language course that is aligned to your level. No prior Spanish language ability is required to participate on this program. Housing is with host families and the program includes multiple excursions to precolonial and colonial sites, museums, markets, artisan cooperatives, and unique natural areas.
