Enjoy two weeks of cultural orientation and intensive language preparation in Cuernavaca, Mexico before the semester starts in Xalapa.
Mexico has the largest number of World Heritage Sites of any country in the Americas and the sixth most in the world. As a BCA student, you will visit up to six World Heritage sites with BCA’s Resident Director, an archaeologist who will show you many of the amazing ruins, historical sites and national treasures of Mexico.
With inexpensive, convenient and safe transportation–there are wonderful opportunities to explore Mexico.
Xalapa provides fascinating laboratories for exploring important global social issues: poverty; migration; “traditional” vs. “modern” culture, etc. BCA’s “Street Children and Popular Education” course is a great gateway into learning about these topics!
Volunteer, intern or do an independent study, including opportunities to teach English as a second language.
Become fluent in Spanish. BCA Xalapa is regarded as one of the best study abroad programs available for Spanish language immersion.
Mexico is very affordable! Enjoy low cost living, entertainment and adventures.
