May 1, 2015 - King’s College students Heather Danishanko and Madison Gallagher and two of the College’s faculty will participate in a three-week study abroad experience to Canto Grande, Peru. The trip includes excursions to Lima, Paracas, and Machu Picchu.
The students will travel to the Peyton Center, a facility operated by the Congregation of the Holy Cross, located near Lima, Peru.
Titled “Conversing Across Cultures,” the program features a number of activities, including language and culture classes and interactive sessions with native speakers, a community service initiative at a local school, visits to cultural sites, and lectures at the prestigious Ponificia Universidad Católica de Lima.
This program is designed to broaden students’ cultural perspectives, offer comparisons between U.S. and Peruvian cultures, and provide real-world opportunities for using Spanish.
King’s College faculty members Dr. Anne Massey and Dr. James Ambury are program directors. Renata Evan, coordinator of short-term faculty-led programs abroad, assisted in developing the program.
