Accreditation

Courses at the CEA Buenos Aires Center are designed in conjunction with, approved, and transcripted by our School of Record, the University of New Haven. UNH is accredited by the Commission on Higher Education of the New England Association for Schools and Colleges.

The CEA Buenos Aires Center offers an interdisciplinary liberal arts and social sciences education in a cosmopolitan capital city. CEA courses turn the city into your classroom, thanks to courses in a wide range of liberal arts and social science subjects focused on Argentina and Latin America. The city of Buenos Aires provides a stimulating environment in which to study political, cultural, and business trends in Latin America. You’ll enjoy the opportunity to gain global competency and further your academic pursuits while immersed in a city that blends its European heritage with a modern Latin American style.

Designed to explore the natural strengths of the city’s history, culture, and political environment, CEA Buenos Aires Center curriculum focuses on language, cultural studies, international relations, and business. Courses incorporate activities specifically designed to take the curriculum out of the classroom and into the community. Even outside of the classroom, you’re constantly encouraged to apply what you’ve learned by connecting subjects examined in class to the daily life of the host community. This ongoing, active, and reflective approach not only helps you gain a better historical and social understanding of Buenos Aires and Latin America, but also helps you develop the international cultural fluency required to communicate and function effectively in an increasingly globalized world.

The mission of the CEA Buenos Aires Center is to provide you with the tools and direction you need to learn about Argentina and Latin America, and to allow you to critically reflect and articulate on your own national, cultural, and social identities.

Faculty members at the CEA Buenos Aires Center are committed to fostering students’ intellectual and cultural growth by engaging them in lively simulated debates, multimedia research presentations, and round-table discussions.

Courses taught at the CEA Buenos Aires Center have been designed in conjunction with and approved by the University of New Haven (UNH). Academics from other institutions, including the University of Florida and University of Arizona, also contributed expertise to the curriculum development process.

Completion of a course is defined as a receipt of a letter grade (A+ to F) as opposed to Withdrawal or Incomplete.

In order to determine a quality point ratio, each letter grade from a completed course is assigned a quality point value. The quality point value for each grade earned during a semester is multiplied by the number of semester hours assigned to that course. The sum of these points is the total number of quality points earned during the semester. It is divided by the number of semester hours completed to obtain the quality point ratio (QPR).

If you could go anywhere, where would you choose?

Can't decide? Don't worry. We still love you. Check as many as you like. Still not sure? That's OK. We would totally have a hard time too. Just check 'I don't know yet'.
