Harding University in Latin America (HULA) has its home base in a restored, 19th-century mansion, “El Castillo,” in the beautiful, historic colonial city of Arequipa, Peru. Located in a valley at 7,000-foot elevation, Arequipa is surrounded by volcanoes, many of which students have the opportunity to climb during the semester. 

The program focuses on Latin American culture, history and the Spanish language, and the group immerses in the culture by visiting many places in Peru, Argentina and Chile, such as Easter Island, Machu Picchu, the Amazon rainforest, Patagonia, Lima, Cusco, Lake Titicaca, Colca Canyon, the Nazca Lines, Paracas and more. 

All students are required to enroll in a Spanish class, but no previous Spanish experience is required. Spanish majors and minors have the opportunity to enroll in upper-level Spanish classes to progress in their degree plan and improve their language proficiency while experiencing Latin America firsthand. The HULA program takes place during Spring semesters only and travels with a maximum of 40 students each semester.
