Summer Quechua Language Study in Cuzco

The Latin American and Caribbean Studies Program at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, is pleased to announce the annual Quechua Study program, which will be held in Cuzco, Peru, from July 3 to August 16, 2003. This is the fourth year that Latin American and Caribbean Studies has cosponsored the Summer Quechua Study program held at the Escuela Andina de Postgrado, Centro de Estudios Regionales "Bartolomé de las Casas," in Cuzco, Peru. The program is open to all college and university undergraduate and graduate students who wish to learn Southern Quechua. This unique program offers high quality intensive language instruction through the faculty of the Escuela Andina de Postgrado and the unusual experience of living and learning in the ancient Inka capital of Cuzco.

The Program

Three levels of intensive Southern Quechua will be taught at the Escuela Andina de Postgrado in Cuzco: Intensive Beginning Quechua, Intensive Intermediate Quechua, and Intensive Advanced Quechua. Classes will meet intensively for seven weeks. These courses meet daily for 4 hours per day, a total of 140 language instruction contact hours per course. Enrollment will be limited to 15 for each of the five levels. The program is open to all graduate and professional school students. A series of lectures on Quechua culture and history and an extensive program of excursions and cultural events will supplement the courses.

Students may choose to take the course for University of Michigan credit by enrolling in the corresponding courses (LACS 471/472, 473/474, and 475/476), or may take the course without University credit by enrolling directly through Escuela Andina de Postgrado. The same academic criteria will apply to credit and non-credit students.

Three levels are taught in intensive 7-week courses (each course is the equivalent of a full academic year course):

Beginning Quechua (LACS 471/472)
Intermediate Quechua (LACS 473-474)
Advanced Quechua (LACS 475-476).
