Quito, Ecuador (test)
Learning the Local. Shaping the Global.
Our multi-faceted Quito program is a rich combination of challenging university academics, once-in-a-lifetime educational excursions and individualized learning opportunities.
Few programs in the world can offer the diversity of experience that BCA-Quito does; each and every semester, students have the opportunity to study and/or experience first-hand the most important themes of our time: social justice through the lenses of human rights, poverty, labor issues, public health and education; environmental sustainability; biodiversity; cultural identity; and democratization.
Study and experience these themes through…
- Hundreds of university courses at Ecuador’s premiere university, USFQ.
- Life-changing, sustainably-operated excursions to the Galapagos Islands and Amazon Rainforest, not to mention an organic farm, indigenous villages, marginal neighborhoods and historical sites.
- Individualized service learning opportunities in sites such as a mobile medical clinic, an Afro-Ecuadorian cultural center, and after school enrichment programs.
