Adventure Awaits Summer 2015

The whispering winter winds may have engulfed IU, but it isn't too early to start thinking about courses for summer 2015. Adventure through Yucatán, Mexico and study international tourism; study cultural ecology and sustainable agriculture in Jamaica; stroll through the streets of Havana to witness Cuba's boldest social reforms since the revolution, or perform anthropological fieldwork in Oaxaca, Mexico. Visit our summer 2015 course page for more information, and prepare for a real summertime adventure.
