About the Program

Program Description

Through a combo of Spanish language instruction—designed for your level of proficiency—and focused courses in either Spanish or English, you’ll develop a deeper understanding of Latin American culture, history, economics, and politics. You’ll gain fluency through courses focused on listening comprehension, conversation, and grammar. Semester students may choose an Early Start option to jump-start their Spanish language proficiency before the session begins. The semester program is designed for students at beginner to intermediate Spanish levels; the summer program is designed for students at high-intermediate and above Spanish level.

Program Structure

Enroll in 1 language course and 3-4 Latin American studies courses. Language and elective courses meet for 30-45 contact hours/2-3 credits. If you choose the Early Start option, you’ll enroll in an additional language course that meets for 100 contact hours/6 credits. You may earn a total of up to 15 credits (up to 225 contact hours); if you choose the Early Start option, you may earn a total of up to 21 credits (up to 315 contact hours).

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.

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.
