One of the few BU programs offered only in the summer, the Lima program gives students a fascinating view of Peruvian life. Students spend three and-a-half weeks in Lima, a busy, energetic city with a wonderful mix of Spanish heritage and modern-day influence.
Students live with local families and attend class at a local university, studying the political, economic, social, and environmental impacts of natural resource extraction.
