Our summer field school brings students and faculty to Guatemala for a month long trip including two weeks of intensive language classes and two weeks devoted to research. The field school ran for the first time in June 2016 and will continue each summer for both new and returning participants. Research in 2016-2017 was focused on Mayan languages, but the goal is to expand to include other locally relevant research areas, such as public health and nutrition.

Students stay with local families to experience daily life, immersing themselves in the language and culture.
