Fair Trade Study Abroad in Belize seeks to provide students a study abroad experience that applies business concepts in a real world learning experience. Students have the opportunity to experience the concepts they learn through interactions with a new culture and business owners in a foreign country. The structure of the course is focused on reading, discussions, and papers before the trip and after the trip students will work on projects for Belizean businesses. Financial aid and scholarships are available.
