The study abroad program in Puebla, Mexico is the ultimate program for any student who seeks to improve their Spanish and follow their academic passions to the extreme!
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 3-credit hospital rotation program, where clinical shadowing takes place in groups and important lessons about cross-cultural medical understanding are taught. 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.
During the Spring semester, students can choose to take classes at UPAEP or Tec de Monterrey, combining an incredible variety of classes in the liberal arts and business and economic sciences and participating in excursions and special opportunities by both institutions. In the past, students in the Spring semester have participated in research projects and internships with filmmakers, economists, school psychologists, 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.
