About the Program

Through a combo of Spanish language instruction and focused courses in either Spanish or English, you’ll develop a deeper understanding of Latin American culture, history, economics, and politics. Semester students may choose an Early Start option to jump-start their Spanish language proficiency before the session begins. You have two options with this program: take all of your courses with our local partner, Universidad de Belgrano, or take courses between the CEA Buenos Aires Center and with our local partner, Universidad Austral.

The Universidad de Belgrano semester program is designed for students at beginner to intermediate Spanish levels while the summer program is designed for students at high-intermediate and above Spanish level. The CEA Buenos Aires Center and Universidad Austral program is designed for students of all levels and does not require a language course.

Take courses at one of the top ten universities in Latin America and top private universities in Argentina, Universidad Austral . Universidad Austral’s IAE Business School holds accreditation from AACSB, EQUIS, and AMBA. CEA students will take course at Austral’s Buenos Aires campus, conveniently located a short walking distance from the CEA Buenos Aires Center.
This private Argentine university hosts almost 1,000 international students each year. Located in the residential Belgrano neighborhood, the Universidad de Belgrano offers courses taught in your choice of Spanish and English in fields such as business, communications, cultural studies, social sciences, and Spanish language for all abilities. Its modern campus offers cultural and athletic activities to enhance student life and complement academics.

When you study abroad in Buenos Aires, you can choose CEA housing or arrange your own independent housing. CEA housing assignments are based on availability and confirmation date; we make every effort to match your housing requests, but we can’t guarantee housing preferences.  

Please note that housing is not included in Virtual Internship programs.

Program Structure

Universidad de Belgrano Option

Enroll in 1 language course and 3-4 Latin American studies courses. Language and elective courses meet for 30-90 contact hours/2-5 credits. Most courses are 60 contact hours/3 credits. If you choose the Early Start option, you’ll enroll in an additional language course that meets for 120 contact hours/6 credits. You may earn 12-15 credits (up to 300 contact hours); if you choose the Early Start option, you may earn 18-21 credits (up to 420 contact hours).

The University of Belgrano utilizes a 45-minute contact hour whereas the United States higher education system utilizes a 50-minute contact hour. All University of Belgrano courses represent the 45 contact hour amount and an estimated US credit calculation based on the contact hours. Each University of Belgrano transcript will include the number of hours per week and the weeks in the semester, so US universities may calculate the appropriate number of US credits for students.
Classes meet for 4 hours per week on Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday. Early Start language classes meet Monday-Friday for 25 hours per week. Active learning components required by your courses may be scheduled for Fridays.

CEA Buenos Aires Center & Universidad Austral Option

By selecting our CEA and Austral Hybrid program, you’ll enroll in 3-4 CEA elective courses, which may include a Spanish language course and 1-2 Austral elective courses. You also have the option to enroll in up to 2 CEA virtual courses. 

Courses meet for 45 contact hours/3 credits. If you choose the Early Start option, you’ll enroll in an additional language course that meets for 45 contact hours/3 credits. You may earn 12-15 credits (up to 225 contact hours); with the Early Start option, you may earn up to 18 credits (up to 315 contact hours).

Classes meet 1-3 times per week, Monday-Thursday. Active learning components required by your courses may be scheduled for Fridays. The Early Start language course meets Monday-Thursday for a total of 22.5 hours per week.

CEA virtual courses are taught in English using an online Learning Management System. You are expected to be an active participant in online forums, in addition to completing your regular readings, videos and homework. You can expect a blend of synchronous (live) and asynchronous (at your own pace) learning approaches that provide individual attention and flexibility for your learning style. Engaging in your “own way” gives you an opportunity to showcase your engagement in any topic or assignment while being part of an online global learning community.

Prior to departure, you will select your preferred courses and take a language placement exam. Final course registration takes place on-site. 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. 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.
