Cultures and Histories in San Cristobal, Chiapas, Mexico
June 7 – June 30, 2017
The Honors College and LALS program are jointly sponsoring a summer study abroad program with our own Honors College Faculty Fellow Joel Palka. This program will give students an opportunity to learn about Chiapas from the Colonial Period to the present, as well as acquire knowledge regarding indigenous cultures in Mexico – for example – Mayan indigenous medicine. Students will have unique opportunity to conduct independent study project under supervision of UIC Professor Joel Palka. This opportunity could be used as the foundation for an Honors Capstone project.
See the attached flier for more information. For Honors College students, the cost will be reduced to $3050, $900 less than the flyer says. There are also other scholarships that students can apply for to help defray the costs. Anyone interested should contact the Study Abroad office and attend a Study Abroad First Steps Session ASAP because space is limited.
If you have questions about the program, contact Irina Krymova at firstname.lastname@example.org at the Study Abroad Office, Professor Joel Palka at email@example.com, or Honors College Associate Dean Sloan Williams firstname.lastname@example.org .
