Located along the Caribbean coast of Central America, Belize is home to a host of Caribbean and Central American cultures and ethnic groups as well as inspiring ecological diversity, including neotropical rainforests, with their assortment of monkeys, jaguars and toucans, and the largest barrier reef in the western hemisphere.
Within this context, CCSP students are able to examine sustainable development and tropical ecology through a Christian lens of creation care and stewardship by utilizing field studies in Belizean villages, tropical rainforests, mountain streams and Caribbean atolls. Students also have the opportunity to take part in interest-specific internship experiences with Belizean organizations seeking regeneration and renewal of the land and communities. In Belize, intrepid students take part in a semester abroad experience like no other!
Throughout the semester, the schedule also allows for independent exploration of Belize (and neighboring countries) during breaks and free weekends.
New Zealand Program
From New Zealand's snow capped mountains to its topaz coastline, CCSP's New Zealand students explore a wonderland of unique ecosystems. Home to about twelve percent of all the earth's endangered species and a world leading innovator in conservation and environmental management, New Zealand is an ideal place to study creation care.
A rigorous academic semester comprised of ecology, theology, environmental literature, and sustainable community development is enhanced by a community living experience from the first day students move into CCSP's campus, Dolphin Lodge, in the town of Kaikoura on East Coast of New Zealand's South Island.
Living in a small town with friendly people, unsurpassed beauty, and lots of local and outdoor activities to enjoy, students can experience New Zealand to its fullest. The schedule also allows for travel further afield (even to Australia) during a week long mid-semester break and during free weekends.
