Queretaro buildings

The city of Queretaro, situated in the State of Queretaro, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. With its colonial aqueduct as a major landmark and a wonderfully preserved city center, Queretaro embodies the beauty of colonial Mexico. Many international companies have located in and around Queretaro giving it an excellent reputation as a center for business and commerce. With a population of nearly 600,000 inhabitants, Queretaro is large enough to be interesting, and small enough to be very livable.
Students have multiple opportunities to study in Querétaro, Mexico, a top study abroad destination since 1986. Students may choose a 14-week semester Mexican Studies Program in fall, or one of the three different Summer Session options for 5, 6 or 11-weeks. As neighboring North American countries Mexico and the United States share a long history and an ever evolving relationship. Mexico, one of the US’s largest trading partners, is a fascinating and culturally rich country undergoing significant changes in the 21st century. Characterized by an unusual blend of ancient cultures and contemporary society, Mexico invites closer examination. Querétaro, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with its safety, central location and economic stability is an ideal city to experience Mexico and get to know its people.
