You will enroll in a two-part internship seminar course that includes an academic seminar and an internship placement. This two-part internship seminar may be worth either 3 or 6 credits. In addition to courses at the CEA Buenos Aires Center, you may also choose to take elective courses at Universidad Austral.
The 3 credit part-time internship option includes a seminar that meets for 22 contact hours and a minimum of 120 hours at your internship placement throughout the semester. In addition, you will select 2-3 elective courses from our study center course options and up to 2 elective courses at Universidad Austral.
The 6 credit part-time internship option includes a seminar that meets for 32 contact hours and a minimum of 200 hours at your internship placement throughout the semester. In addition, you will select 2 elective courses from our study center options.
Elective courses at both CEA Buenos Aires Center and Universidad Austral meet for 45 contact hours/3 credits. Overall, semester students may earn 12 credits (362 contact hours). Students may take one additional 3 credit/45 contact hour course if needed for a total of 15 credits (407 contact hours). Given the demands of an internship, 12 credits is recommended.
Elective courses generally meet 2 times per week, Monday-Thursday. Active learning components required by your courses may be scheduled for Fridays. Your internship seminar meets weekly. Your internship placement hours may take place Monday-Friday; the exact time of day and days of the week will be determined after you arrive.
We strongly recommended that you apply as soon as possible. Internship positions are selective; students who demonstrate both professionalism and commitment throughout the process are most successful in securing placements.
The internship placement process involves three video interviews: a screening interview with your Internship Coach, a job placement interview with your study center placement coordinator, and a final interview with your host site supervisor. The host site retains the final decision regarding placements, so it’s important that your interviews reflect your maturity, adaptability, curiosity, and commitment to both your career interests and the host organization. Upon successfully completing your study center placement coordinator interview, CEA guarantees you a placement based on the personal, professional, and cross-cultural goals reflected in your interview. All placements will be secured two weeks prior to arrival.
Upon placement, you’ll automatically be enrolled in your internship course. Prior to departure, you will be asked to also select your preferred elective courses and, if you plan to take a language course, you will be asked to take an online language placement exam. You will be enrolled into courses based on their availability. It is in your best interest to have multiple alternative courses approved by your home university prior to your departure due to course availabilities. If you choose to take a language course, to ensure that you receive credit for the language level you place into, have your home school pre-approve courses at several levels before you leave for Argentina. Please consult with your academic advisor at your home university on credit pre-approval guidelines.
The host institution has offered the following courses in the past. Please note that course listings may not be finalized until the start of the term; we’ll post an updated list when the host institution finalizes its offerings.

Get out and explore! Excursions are offered for most semester, year, and summer programs*. Semester students are typically offered between two to three excursions and summer study students are typically offered between one to two excursions. You'll receive a calendar of excursions during orientation; here are a few day and overnight excursions we've offered in the past.
Colonia del Sacramento, Uruguay
A World Heritage Site, Colonia was founded by the Portuguese in 1680. The historic quarter still captures the look and feel of the colonial era in Latin America. You’ll travel by ferry across the River Plate from Buenos Aires to explore this charming town’s cobbled streets leading to old lighthouses, inns, restaurants, and its original bullfighting ring. You’ll also enjoy a traditional lunch during your time in Uruguay.
Iguazú Falls (optional)
Spanning three countries, Iguazu Falls is one of the seven natural wonders of the world and a popular destination. Thousands travel to Iguazu Falls every year to marvel at the Garganta del Diablo, a U-shaped cascade that is 269 feet tall and almost 2,300 feet long. You'll enjoy a full-day excursion to Iguazu National Park.
This excursion is optional, for an additional fee. Students need to sign up for this excursion through their myCEA Account by the withdrawal date for their program.
Attend a polo match and learn about one of Argentina’s most popular sports. You’ll have the opportunity to sit in the stadium and join fans as they cheer (elegantly) for their favorite team. Availability of this excursion depends on polo matches schedule and location.
One of the world’s largest deltas, this popular riverside retreat just north of Buenos Aires is a wonderful place to get away from the bustling city. Indulge in a traditional lunch, relax on a ferry tour, and browse local artisans’ handmade crafts at the Puerto de Frutos open air market.
