Program Overview

Program Description:

CELA Belize offers intensive field courses, creating powerful learning experiences during the summer and winter break. The summer session runs in 2 week sections from mid-May to early July. Students may take  two or three courses for 3 credit hours each.  The winter session starts with arrivals on December 26 for the two weeks. Studying abroad gives students field experiences to add to their CVs when applying for jobs or pursuing higher degrees. Animal science (pre-vet), global/public health, traditional medicine, marine biology, indigenous studies, tropical ecology, international human rights and food studies are great courses to take in tropical Belize. 3 hour credits can be transferred to home institutions with prior approval.

Our intensive field courses deliver hands-on experiences which are very unique for a variety of disciplines. Belize has a wonderful array of bio- and cultural diversity, creating experiential learning every day for the adventurous student. Classes are small so each student interacts with the people, animals and the environment in this small, tropical country. Classes are taught in the jungle, villages, towns and islands of Belize.

Our internships, from 4 - 16 weeks, put students with Belizean families in home stays, and the places them in a variety of organizations which best meet their academic needs. This is a rich learning experience for a longer period of time.
