Come experience life in the second largest country in Latin America in a city of 14 million people - There are tree-lined streets, cafes on every corner, and fantastic shopping! Explore the cosmopolitan city of Buenos Aires, home to the famous Tango and Mate. Learn Spanish with a slight Italian twist while living in a fun, vibrant environment that never seems to sleep.
Get excited about:
A European-like location but at a fraction of the cost - And there’s no compromising here. You’ll get everything (and in some cases more!) that you would expect from a world-class city in Europe, but with a cheaper flight, cheaper cost of living, and an overall more affordable study abroad program when comparing tuition, housing, meals, activities, etc. with other programs in Europe.
Spanish language and other locally-focused courses in English - You will be placed in the appropriate course for your level of Spanish in a special program that specializes in teaching foreign students. You can even choose to head down there a month early for an extra month of studying Spanish. Students of an intermediate or higher level of Spanish can also take fun content courses in Latin American and Argentine topics, taught with Spanish language learners in mind.
Courses in English with Argentine/Latin American/International emphases - Not comfortable enough with your Spanish to take ALL your courses in it? Or, want to give your poor “language lobe” a rest? Take a Latin American literature or history course in English. Need a business course to graduate? We’ve got those too! In total, there are about 20-25 courses offered in English each semester.
CISabroad Semester in Argentina participants have two distinct academic options to choose topics courses from, depending on their Spanish language levels:
1. PALAS (Program in Argentine and Latin American Studies), which is a 15 week semester with classes in English for beginner to intermediate Spanish language students
2. PEAL (Programa de Estudios Argentinos y Latinoamericanos), which are classes in Spanish, but for foreigners with intermediate to advanced levels of Spanish language
There are many reasons to study on our Semester in Argentina program, but here are a few of the key highlights that make this program unique.
• Study at an internationally-minded university in a great part of Buenos Aires
• Live in fun, social dorms
• Affordable program also includes 3 meals a day Monday through Friday
