    Biola students attending the Justice Studies in Honduras program spend a fall semester living with Honduran families and studying economic development theories in the context of poor communities in Honduras.


    What Will I Study?

    In their host city of Tegucigalpa, students will learn about the factors that make Honduras the third poorest country in the western world. Then, students will use that knowledge as a lens to look at the rest of the world. During their time in Honduras, students will watch as development theories leap off the pages of their Calvin textbooks and come alive at garment factories, banana plantations and subsistence farms. All these experiences will help students better understand your role as a Christian in our world today.
