Our Unique Programs and Courses
Belize Institute of Integrative Studies offers unique programs with a variety of courses designed to prepare you for a successful career of your choice.
We offer a residential learning center located on a working farm where food is grown, harvested, packaged, and distributed within a viable business model, such that our students can actively participate in the daily operations and benefit from consuming nutritious food high in vitamins and minerals.
By participating in the day-to-day operations of the farm, our learners gain the therapeutic benefit of living and working in nature, interacting directly with the natural world, and working alongside the staff of the farm. Social interactions are naturally “built in” to the curriculum, because learners work and live alongside our staff and volunteers within a functional, cooperative, self-sustainable community setting that can be replicated in other locations.
