Ever wondered what it would be like to travel to South America? Curious to see first-hand the diverse cultures of Peru? Maybe you are interested in participating in a cultural anthropology field school? Peru is home to a wide variety of ecological and social environments, which create a tremendous amount of cultural diversity within the country. Students will have the opportunity for Andean highland cultural immersion through working on collaborative community works projects, visiting remote Andean highland communities, and conducting ethnographic fieldwork.. Join us as we travel through Peru to Lima and Huaraz to see the patterns of culture found throughout the Andes mountains. Our 23-day journey will take us to archaeological sites, highland communities where we will participate in community works projects, local farms, and national museums.
