At the University of Southern Mississippi, several students traveled abroad to Montego Bay, Jamaica from May 10 to May 24 with the 2014 Caribbean Studies Program.

During the 14-day excursion, students got the opportunity to earn class credit, interact with native Jamaicans, embrace the Jamaican culture, travel to different cities in Jamaica to visit major landmarks and attractions.

The program offered students the chance to take classes in Marine Biology, Caribbean Literature and Health Care Delivery Systems (Nursing).

Some of the attractions and landmarks include Dunn’s River Fall, Blue Mountains, White Witch of Rose Hall Castle, Bob Marley Museum, National Gallery of Jamaica Devon House and Emancipation Park.

Instead of staying in Ochos Rios this year, students resided in El Greco, a beach front resort in Montego Bay. Nevertheless, students as well as professors traveled to Ochos Rios and Kingston, Jamaica.
