NCE305: Reefs, Rainforests and Ruins of Belize
NCEP 305 focuses on the interactions between the unique cultures and natural environments of Belize in both historical and modern times. Students study how the history, cultures, and economy of Belize are shaped by the natural marine and terrestrial resources of the country. The travel experience begins with exploring the modern Caribbean culture and snorkeling the reef systems around Ambergris Caye. We then move inland to hike in the rainforest and experience preservation and conservation efforts in the Rio Bravo Conservation and Management Area, the largest private reserve in Belize. Students also get first-hand experience with Mayan history and culture by exploring archeological sites at various stages of restoration including a day trip to Tikal, Guatemala, and by visiting with modern Maya. Throughout the trip, students will interact with Belizean locals of different cultures and learn about the modern issues facing the people of Belize.
