Latin American Studies Exchange at the Universidad Autonoma de Yucatan in Merida
Merida, Mexico (Outgoing Program)
|Restrictions:||UCF applicants only|
|Dates / Deadlines:|
The Universidad Autónoma de Yucatán, or UADY, is an autonomous public university in the state of Yucatán, Mexico, with its central campuses located in the state capital of Mérida. It is the largest tertiary educational institution in the state, offering some 41 different courses at the undergraduate or Bachelor's degree level, and 26 postgraduate Master's degrees. The institution was established in 1922 by then governor Felipe Carrillo Puerto as the Universidad Nacional del Sureste, but its lineage may be traced back to a Spanish Empire royal decree promulgated in 1611, that allowed for the creation of the Colegio de San Francisco Javier in Mérida.
Mérida, the vibrant capital of the Mexican state of Yucatán, has a rich Mayan and colonial heritage. The city’s focal point is Plaza de la Independencia, bordered by the fortresslike Mérida Cathedral and white limestone Iglesia de la Tercera Orden, colonial-era churches built using relics from ancient Mayan temples. The Casa de Montejo, a 16th-century mansion, is a landmark of colonial plateresque architecture.
