The study abroad program in Puebla, Mexico is the ultimate program for any student who seeks to improve their Spanish and pursue their academic passions!
The Fall Semester program in Puebla is designed for pre-health students to take their passion for medicine to a higher level. Students in this program engage in a hospital rotation program, which includes clinical shadowing and opportunities to understand healthcare from a cross-cultural perspective. The program also features a partnership with the Harper Institute for Cancer Research and accepts a select group of students to engage in cancer research in a pediatric oncology center. Program excursions introduce students to nonprofits that work in issues of rural healthcare and health education.
During the Spring semester, students can take an incredible variety of classes in the liberal arts, business and economics, and social sciences. The program includes exciting excursions in and outside of Mexico that are related to sustainable international development. Students in the Spring semester have participated in research projects and internships with filmmakers, economists, school psychologists, youth community centers, and the municipal government.
Students applying to the Puebla program in either semester must have four semesters of college-level Spanish or the equivalent. Though both semesters are open to all majors, we particularly encourage pre-medicine majors to apply in the Fall and encourage humanities, social sciences, and business students to apply for the Spring semester.
