The sparkling lights of La Paz below sacred 20,000-foot peaks. Three coca leaves pressed together for the Mother Earth. Fresh snow on a ridge of the Cordillera Real. Local markets exploding in color… These scenes all speak to the many walks of life in Bolivia and Peru. A land of extremes, this College Study Abroad program explores the dizzying diversity of the Central Andes and Amazon while delving into themes of social justice, environmental conservation, and leadership in an inter-cultural context.
College Study Abroad students enroll in 12-16 semester credits. Each semester program offers four college-level courses (4 credits each), allowing students to take a regular semester course load. In addition to the classroom work, Dragons’ College Study Abroad programs are intentionally designed to help students build practical skills to navigate the world with greater self-awareness and inter-cultural fluency.
