- Program Description:
Established formally as a university in 1991, the Universidad Torcuato di Tella (UTDT) grew out of an existing research institution known as the Instituto Torcuato di Tella, founded in 1958. Modeled after the tradition of an American liberal arts institution, this small private university is also based in the Belgrano neighborhood within Buenos Aires, a charming area of tree-lined streets and private residences. UTDT prides itself on its research capabilities and the quality of its professors, the majority of whom hold advanced degrees from American or European universities. The university offers degrees in law, architecture, economics and business, international relations, political science and government, and history.
The Universidad Torcuato di Tella is known among Argentines for its academic quality. Students will enjoy the benefits of a small-campus feel and small to moderate class sizes. The Humanities and Social Sciences Program offers two tracks: one for students who prefer to take some or all coursework in English and an advanced track for students who prefer to take all of their coursework in Spanish. Regardless of the track selected, all students selecting the early start option will begin the program with a four-week, intensive Spanish language and Argentine culture course (equivalent to four U.S. semester credits). This course is designed to help visiting international students review grammatical concepts, perfect their writing and gain a more in-depth view of Argentine life and culture.
