In Cuenca, a city of 400,000 in the Ecuadorian highlands, you’ll attend Colegio Alemán Stiehle with local students for courses in art, math, history, philosophy and science. Courses in Spanish literature and culture (taught by an Exeter faculty member), along with help from your host family, will help guide you toward fluency in the language.

While in Ecuador, you’ll supplement your coursework with service learning projects and many field trips, including retracing Darwin’s journey on an excursion to the Galápagos, a visit to Cajas National Park, and an excursion to Gualeceo and Chordaleg.

The Experiential Approach

Hands-on learning is available through non-sibi programs led by Exeter faculty.
