Rapa Nui - Summer 2014

You've seen the statues.

Ever thought you could study on site, with leading Rapa Nui expert and Dean of the Clark Honors College, Dr. Terry Hunt?  You can!  Be part of a small group of students who will spend nearly three weeks on Rapa Nui in a special study abroad course combining seminar-style intensive course material and daily field trips to witness the island's most remarkable archeology (photos).

Dr. Hunt's work has been featured in a National Geographic cover stody (July 2012), on Nova-National Geographic TV, and in his award-winning book with Carl Lipo, The Statues that Walked (2011).
