Living in Yucatán

Research and Learning at Millsaps Yucatán Reserve

 

Living in YucatanMillsaps College (and its non-profit organization Kaxil Kiuic) supports and operates a 4,500 acre tropical forest biocultural reserve in the heart of the Yucatán peninsula. The Millsaps College Biocultural Reserve with its incredible biological and archaeological resources serves as a center for our Living In Yucatán Program, which offers courses in the study of archaeology, business, ecology, education, geology, history, literature, and socio-cultural anthropology. Courses alternate by year so check the College Catalog for current year offerings. Students may return to Yucatán to take additional courses and may decide to participate in the ongoing archaeological and natural science research going on at the Reserve.

The Reserve consists of an off-the-grid Research and Learning Center, a laboratory and research facility in the nearby Maya town of Oxkutzcab and the new Center for Business and Culture, a dormitory-classroom facility in Merida developed by the Else School of Management. While at Millsaps College take advantage of our Study Abroad opportunities by taking a course in the Living in Yucatán Program and/or doing research or an internship in a wide variety of fields at one of our facilities. Contact George Bey (beygj@millsaps.edu) if you have any questions.
