Andean Study Tour
Exploring the Incas
Summer 2016

This study tour immerses students in Andean culture in a way that reflects the cross-disciplinary nature of Latin American Studies. The itinerary and coursework introduce the Andean region through multiple disciplinary lenses, including art history, history, studio art, environmental studies, museum studies, political science, archaeology and literature. The tour explores a variety of locations from the ancient cities of the Inca, to the Colonial city of Cusco, to contemporary villages in Chinchero. Overall, the study tour provides students with an overview of Andean culture in relation to both natural and built environments, as well as meaningful interaction with the history and people of the Andes from its ancient roots through the Colonial period and into the present.

Peru 1


A study tour to Peru allows St. Mary’s students to explore one of the most demographically, culturally and environmentally diverse countries in the world. We believe the program compliments the growing institutional and student body interest in Latin American Studies. This study tour meets the College mission for international education through experiential learning opportunities and cultural immersion via homestays, weaving workshops, site visits, work with NGO cooperatives, and introductory Quechua.
