Belize: an English-speaking country in the heart of Central America, home to one of the greatest concentrations of biodiversity on the planet, dotted with magnificent archaeological remnants of the Mayan people and populated by their descendants. But diversity in Belize doesn't end with its biological wonders, as you will discover for yourself by living among the people of Orange Walk on the CCSA Belize Anthropology Program. Spend a month immersed in Belize doing field research with Dr. Doug Hume, an experienced Northern Kentucky University faculty member. Gain valuable skills such as ethnographic interviewing to develop an appreciation for Belizean cultural diversity.
Program requires round-trip group air transportation from Cincinnati, Ohio (CVG) to Belize. Round-trip air transpiration from other cities MAY be considered on a case-by-case basis at an additional cost.
The ethnographic field school partners with Belizean institutes and associations in order to contribute to an understanding of household economy and agricultural knowledge of sugar cane farmers in Orange Walk District village communities. Our community partners will use our results and recommendations to develop and conduct workshops for farmers on agricultural techniques, economics, health, and other community development topics.
Prerequisite: One course in anthropology or other social/behavioral science
