Our Study Abroad program follows the Educational Excursions model for foreign student groups, lead by a professor. The programs are suitable for all levels of Higher education, as they take an open and multi-disciplinary approach that combines teaching in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics with cultural subjects and first-hand practical experience to help develop students capable of learning and solving problems in an unfamiliar setting. At Hacienda Sta. Clara we believe it’s necessary for education and professional development, whether in Mexico or abroad, to strive towards creating fully-integrated human beings, capable of critical thought, creativity and understanding of the myriad points of view in our world. Here, we propose a twist to the STEM educational model, adding to it the important cultural variable to create a powerful new educational tool – STEAM – where the “A” is dedicated to the Arts.
Duration: Hacienda Sta. Clara offers flexible programs based on Semester Modules, which may last between one and 15 weeks. Our modular syllabus allows us to divide the Study Abroad semester into various stages, allowing for both professors and students to enjoy the maximum flexibility and convenience.
Our team works directly with professors and instructors in order to put together the best possible combination of classes, field trips and activities that will lead towards fulfilling the students’ Learning Objectives through a High Impact Learning Experience.
From engineering and the sciences all the way to Law and Humanities, Hacienda Sta. Clara can help prepare rich, fulfilling content for every study program or career.
Hacienda Sta. Clara’s aim is always to stimulate the interaction and community between foreign and Mexican students, hoping to foster greater understanding and knowledge about other points of view.
Our links to the University of Guanajuato, the Sanmiguelense Institute of Technology, the San Miguel de Allende Technological University (UTSMA) and the Tec de Monterrey university have allowed us to offer visiting students an authentic experience with cultural immersion focused on their study goals.
