Study Abroad

Pitzer in Ecuador Directed Independent Study Project

The independent study project for this program will be an ethnographic study culminating in a major paper written in Spanish for students with advanced Spanish proficiency and in English for students with beginning or intermediate Spanish proficiency. You must select a project that involves field research, and other techniques that facilitate cultural immersion. Topic selection may be limited by available resources and local conditions. Project locations will be limited to areas within and nearby Quito.
