International Field Study in Peru


(2018 Peru Program Application)

Peru offers an unparalleled opportunity for students hoping to experience the cultural and historical depth of Latin America. Once home to one of the oldest civilizations known to history, the ruins of Machu Picchu speak to the enduring legacy of Peru's native population, and the country's vast natural beauty. Its sprawling cities are no less staggering, and students will be given the opportunity to not only see the sights, but to spend a week volunteering in one of its clinics.

No city is as representative of Peru's storied past and bustling future as Cusco, once the seat of the powerful Incan empire, now an industrial and economic metropolis. Students will be able to tour the city, which houses numerous historical landmarks, from the Cathedral in the Plaza de Armas to the ruins of Puka Pukara, Sacsayhuaman, and others.

This program exposes students to some of the nation's oldest monuments and sites as well as its most modern medical facilities. Students will hike the ruins of Machu Picchu and the Sacred Valley, and receive firsthand experience of a Latin American healthcare system in the heart of one of Peru's busiest cities.
