Biola students attending the Development Studies in Honduras spend a fall semester living with Honduran families and studying economic development theories in the context of poor communities in Honduras. In your host city of Tegucigalpa, you’ll learn about the factors that make Honduras the third poorest country in the western world. Then you’ll use that knowledge as a lens to look at the rest of the world. Come to Honduras and watch as development theories leap off the pages of your Calvin textbooks and come alive at garment factories, banana plantations and subsistence farms. Then, use all these experiences to better understand your role as a Christian in our world today.
