CIEE Lima Liberal Arts
Lima’s colonial legacy is reflected in its central Plaza de Armas, the Government Palace, numerous ornately constructed cathedrals, and historic homes with enclosed wooden balconies, typical of the city. Today, Lima is a city with eight million inhabitants and neighborhoods sprawling out from the colonial center. Pedestrian streets with cafes and restaurants lead to bustling intersections. One need only to listen to Peruvian music, eat Peruvian food, and learn about its fascinating history and culture to observe the blending of indigenous, African, Spanish, European, and Asian cultures.
The CIEE Liberal Arts program in Lima is designed for students with five or more semesters of college-level Spanish and a wide variety of majors. Participants directly enroll in regular university courses in a wide variety of subjects alongside Peruvian students and learn first-hand about contemporary culture in bustling Lima.
