    Description

    The University of Mississippi and the American Universities International Program (AUIP) enjoy vast educational opportunities in Belize. Bounded by Mexico on the north, Guatemala on the west and south, and the Caribbean Sea on the east, Belize’s 22,960 km2 of topography range from sea level to 3,688 ft. This variation in altitude and the tropical climate support a great diversity of habitats. The relative underdevelopment and pristine ecosystems of rain forest, pine savannahs, and mangrove swamps are complemented by the longest barrier reef in the Western Hemisphere. Since 1995, the primary purpose of the AUIP study program in Belize has been to provide experiential learning courses for students, professors, and professionals from the United States and Belize. The main emphasis has been on marine biology, ecology, natural resource management, anthropology, ecotourism, and land use.
