For the student interested in Spanish immersion in the most populous Spanish-speaking country[i], a Study Abroad in Mexico Academic Year program may be the undergraduate experience of a lifetime! While you take classes for credits, you also get to soak up the Aztec or Mayan history, culture, food and fiestas that studying abroad in Mexico has to offer. Plus, you get to practice what you learn in relaxed settings after class, like enjoying mariachi music or chilaquiles.
Why Consider a Study Abroad in Mexico Academic Year Undergraduate Program?
As the Rolling Stones say, “Time is on my side”[ii]. Spending a full academic undergraduate year studying abroad in Mexico may be a fantastic way not only to learn Spanish, but also, actually get to know your host country. From port cities such as Veracruz and Acapulco, to the Sierra Madre mountain regions of Oaxaca, the beaches of Cancun and Tulum and Mexico City itself, time may allow you more opportunity to take excursions, make friends, or find an internship. Find the program that suits your academic needs in one of several popular Mexican cities such as Guanajuato, or Guadalajara.
