About the Program

Program Description

Explore Latin American culture and learn about this geographically diverse country while improving your Spanish language skills in Chile! Whether you’re a beginning Spanish speaker, speak at an advanced proficiency level, or are somewhere in between, you’ll take language courses that’ll boost your fluency. During the semester, courses taught in English or Spanish provide you with insight into Latin American and Chilean culture, history, and society.

Program Structure

Choose a 4-week program in January. You’ll enroll in 2 Spanish language and/or Latin American Studies courses appropriate to your level. Language & elective courses meet for 45 contact hours/3 credits each. You may choose to enroll in two consecutive 4-week sessions in the summer.

You may earn a total of 6 credits (up to 90 contact hours) per session pending your language level.

Classes meet Monday-Thursday. Active learning components required by your courses may be scheduled on Fridays.

Prior to departure, you will indicate your preferred courses and approximate language level. Once in Valparaiso, you'll finalize your course enrollment, as well as take a language placement test and be enrolled in the appropriate language course based on the results of your 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. 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 Chile. Please consult with your academic advisor at your home university on credit pre-approval guidelines.

Ranking in the top 30 of Latin American Universities, Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso (PUCV), is recognized for its academic prestige and research within the fields of science, engineering, humanities and the arts offering more than 100 programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
