Study Abroad 2018: Yucatan

Program Description

The 2018 Beyond Cancun Study Tour to Yucatan, Mexico, taking place from March 24-31, 2018, will offer students a unique opportunity to study the Hispanic and Maya culture and religion in the heart of the Yucatan, home to the Maya civilization and some of the first missions founded by the Franciscans in continental America. Students will study and experience first-hand Mayan and Hispanic cities while they explore the sacred sites and religious practices of the Yucatan.

In fulfilling the objectives of the program students will travel to Yucatan, and will be exposed to its some of most important cultural treasures, monuments, and cultural centers including the UNESCO World Heritage site of Chichén Itzá.

The program will consist of two courses taught on the Flagler campus during the spring semester and travel to Yucatan during Spring Break 2018. Prof. Timothy Johnson will offer HIS/REL 340A: History of Sacred Yucatan and Prof. Aggie Johnson will offer the SPA 340A Maya & Hispanic Cities course.
