HART304 Maya: Archaeology and Community (travel course) 3 cr.


While the cities built by the ancient Maya of Guatemala are among the most sophisticated and widely studied archaeological sites in the world, the enduring culture of their descendents, the living Maya, often goes unrecognized. During this semester-long academic course on the archaeology and culture of the Maya, students will spend Spring Break in Guatemala visiting archaeological and cultural heritage sites, meeting local artists, and engaging in service-learning projects with Maya communities. Students will enrich their study of ancient Maya art and culture with an invaluable opportunity to live and work among Maya communities of today. Admission by application only.
