About Blue Hill College
Blue Hill College in Guayaquil is a uniquely international institution, founded to meet Ecuador’s need for a 21st-century college with a global perspective. The World Endeavors program at Blue Hill is an opportunity to take a variety of courses in English while also studying Spanish and living with a local family. Students come to Blue Hill from around Ecuador and the world, and courses incorporate both Ecuadorian and international standards of higher education. The curriculum is based on the American academic system, so students can easily find courses in their areas of concentration. The excellent academic programs here include marketing, international relations, business, finance, communications, advertising, and medical studies, among other subjects. The school’s small size makes it easy for students to form connections while they explore life in Ecuador’s largest city.
Who Chooses this Program?
Students choose Blue Hill for the chance to begin or continue studying Spanish, immerse themselves in the local culture, and add an international perspective to their studies. It’s a great fit for students in a variety of disciplines who are eager to become part of the community, living with a local family and taking classes with Ecuadorian students. In any study-abroad program, students are most successful when they are open-minded and excited about experiencing a new culture and lifestyle.
I learned so much about myself and life, more than just in my classes. And I loved my host family.
