A 10-day international study trip to Guatemala from May 5 - 15, 2012 is an integral part of this course.  Led by Dr. Roberto Clemente, students will be visiting the Highlands (Altiplano) by Lake Atitlan and staying at the Universidad del Valle's dormitories.  Students will visit several indigenous Mayan villages, such as San Pedro, San Marcos de la Laguna, and Panajachel, that surround Lake Atitlan.  Members of these villages speak different Mayan languages and dialects.
