Morelia, Mexico

The W&M summer program in Morelia, Mexico is temporarily suspended.

In the past this program has offered students the opportunity to learn Spanish language, Mexican history, culture, and politics, as well as apprentice in the local education system and/or conduct on-site research in the central Mexican state of Michoacán. Credits earned on this program were W&M credits, and grades did appear on student transcripts and were calculated into GPA’s.

Courses offered in the past included HISP 306: Advanced Conversation and Grammar (3 credits), HISP 206: Intermediate Conversation and Grammar (3 credits), INTL 390 (01): Apprenticeship in Culture and Education (3 credits), INTL 390 (02):  Mexican History and Politics (3 credits), HISP 300: Mexican Culture (3 credits).

Past participants in the Morelia summer program lived in homestay arrangements with local host families, and enjoyed a variety of excursions including visits to Guadalajara, Patzcuaro and Santa Clara, Janitzio Island, Guanajuato, Tzintzuntzan and Uruapan.    All meals were provided to participants as part of their living arrangements with host families.
