College Study Abroad South America (Semester)

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.

Amazing Experience in the Andes and Amazon Program

10/10

I participated in the Andes and Amazon semester for where there be dragons last fall and could not have asked for a better experience. Through the program I made friends that I will stay in touch with forever and instructors who inspired me daily. I was able to increase my spanish speaking and communication skills, learn how to do traditional Bolivian dance, and live with some amazing host families. Although some of my days in the Andes and Amazon were the hardest of my life- trekking at 17 thousand feet is never easy!- I would not trade that experience for anything in the world. Truly, cannot recommend this program highly enough! It will stretch your comfort zone and leave you more prepared for your future life ahead!

BEST EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE

10/10

Where There Be Dragons is an unbelievable, life changing Gap Year program that allows you to become fully immersed into a culture. After spending 3 months in Bolivia and Peru, I felt like a true global citizen. Through home stays, language classes, volunteer work, trekking, and independent study projects, I grew as a person and made some unforgettable memories. I HIGHLY recommend Dragons.
