Maymester in Honduras


Purdue University students combine course work with the opportunity to teach students in a bilingual elementary school in Zamorano, two bilingual secondary schools in Tegucigalpa, observe and teach activities in local rural schools, and visit historic sites in Honduras. In the future this program could expand to involve Honduran educators at the university level as well as students and teachers.


The Program in Honduras is focused on Block I (EDCI 205 and EDCI 285- SA10403) or Independent Research (EDCI 490- SA10403) for Undergraduates (Elementary, Special Education, Social Studies and Secondary Majors among others). For Graduate Students Multicultural Education (EDCI 585-SA59000-05), and/or Independent Research (EDCI 590-SA59000-05) or Seminar in Curriculum Studies (EDCI 684-SA59000-05) are available. Students obtain a total of 7credits.
