7 WEEK PROGRAM: May 23 – July 10, 2010
OSEA is pleased to announce two programs offered in addition to the Heritage Ethnography Field School.
In 2010 OSEA initiates the Teaching English Service Learning Program for students who seek on-site, field practicum experience in second language teaching, bi-lingual education, and educational ethnography. By teaching English and documenting the educational process, students participate in a collaborative Community Action Research Project.

The Summer Intensive Maya Language Immersion Program is now in its second year. This program is developed for students seeking to communicative proficiency in Yucatec Maya. This program is ideal for those whose areas of study require fieldwork in and with Maya speaking communities. The program is entirely conducted in a rural Maya community and based on total linguistic and cultural immersion. OSEA provides highly individuated learning with trained native speakers as language trainers who work one-on-one with students.
