The University of Mary has partnered with the Universidad Católica San Pablo in Arequipa, Peru, to offer students an opportunity to study and serve for a full semester in South America.
Mary students live with host families for their semester of study, and all courses are taught in English, with courses including Art, Philsophy (Ethics), Theology, and Spanish.
Mary students will also have the opportunity to meet and study with other international students at the Universidad San Pablo.
The program also offers extensive opportunities to serve the impoverished, including an outreach to the poorest of the poor in the remote town of Ayaviri. Arequipa is Peru’s second largest city, and students will take an excursion to Machu Picchu, one of the “new” seven wonders of the world!
In addition to the semester long program, the University of Mary will also allow our physical therapy doctorate students a medical mission trip during the spring semester, working with “Corpus et Vita” in Lima.
