The CEA Buenos Aires Center turns the city into your classroom. Choose courses in liberal arts, social sciences, and international business, all taught in English and Spanish, and designed to take advantage of the city’s rich history, culture, and political environment. Enjoy courses that best meet your academic, personal, and career interests as you explore all the city offers. 

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. 

Program Structure

CEA’s undergraduate research program includes a personalized research opportunity, an Independent Study Project course and additional elective courses.

The required Independent Study Project (ISP) course is a variable credit course, providing you the flexibility to earn between 1-3 semester credits and has been designed to help you make the most of your research abroad. You will identify the credit option that works best for you during the pre-departure process.

In addition to your ISP course, you will choose 3-4 additional CEA elective course to take from the catalog of course options available to you. You may also choose to enroll in an optional Spanish language course. The ISP course meets 15-45 contact hours/1-3 credits, and elective courses meet for 45 contact hours/3 credits. Overall, you may earn 12-15 credits. With the Early Start option, you may earn up to 18 credits.

The ISP course will meet once weekly for 1 hour each session. 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.

Academic Disciplines & Placement Process
You will be asked to submit a letter of recommendation from your academic advisor or faculty and complete a Research Interest Form that will be used in the initial planning for your research placement. We’ll then identify a local faculty member who will provide oversight and guidance in developing a research plan and a set of research questions relevant to your field of study.  

In Buenos Aires, the following academic disciplines are available:

  • Anthropology
  • Cultural Studies
  • Economics
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Gender Studies
  • History
  • Logistics & Supply Chain Management
  • Marketing
  • Political Science
  • Project Management
  • Sociology
  • Sustainability

You will automatically be enrolled in the Independent Study Project course upon acceptance into the program. Prior to departure, you will select your preferred courses and take a 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 college or university prior to your departure due to course availabilities. To ensure that you receive credit for the language level you place into, we ask that you have your home school pre-approve courses at several levels before you leave for Argentina. Please consult with your academic advisor at your home institution on credit pre-approval guidelines.
