Program Description:

Mexico Sustainability in Emerg
PROGRAM OVERVIEW
This 3-credit program is focused on sustainability in Oaxaca Mexico. Sustainability is comprised of five different components: increase in production, efficient use of non-renewable resources, ecological stewardship, economic improvement, and increase in quality of life. Oaxaca is classified as one of the top Mexican states in ecological, agricultural, cultural, and culinary diversity. During this program, students will visit several locations in the state including the capital city, small towns and villages, and the pacific coast. Students will learn the differences in culture, ecosystem, agriculture, and economics between the USA and an emerging country such as México by exploring one of the most diverse states. 

ACADEMICS
Students will examine the increase in production and efficient use of non-renewable resources, ecological stewardship, economic improvement, and increases in quality of life in Oaxaca. Students will synthesize and evaluate each of sustainability-based experiences during the travel time using a photo-journal and answering the reflection questions. Students will also demonstrate ability to work collaboratively in group activities; demonstrate ability to communicate with fellow participants and with the individuals in the host country and become informed about local Mexican history as it relates to sustainable issues all while having a good experience.
