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.
