Home to some of the world’s oldest civilizations and cultures – dating back 10,000 years – Peru features the rainforest, archaeological treasures, and the ancient Incan capital city of Cusco in the Andes mountains. With immigrant populations from Africa, Asia and Europe – along with its indigenous peoples — Peru is a true melting pot of cultures and traditions with cuisine, music and dance that are appreciated around the world.
Peru has one of the earth’s richest ecosystems on earth, including the Pacific coastline, the Andes mountains and the Amazon rainforest. In addition to its natural wonders, it is home of many of UNESCO’s World Heritage sites.
IFSA and the Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú (PUCP) have partnered up to offer students the chance to study abroad in the stunningly beautiful country of Peru.
Students stay with local Peruvian families as a guest in their home for the duration of the program. This is a great way to practice developing Spanish language skills and get a first hand view on Latin American culture outside of the classroom.
IFSA offers the following programs in Peru:
