With a top-notch beef industry; some of the best wine varieties in the world; and a large production of soybeans, maize, sugarcane, wheat, dairy, and more; why wouldn't you spend a summer studying agriculture in Argentina?

Open to students of all majors, IES Abroad’s Agricultural and Environmental Sciences Summer Program immerses students in the rich agronomy of Argentina. In this 7-week program, you’ll enroll in our required, 4-credit Spanish language course as well as a 3-credit, English-taught course at Universidad de Buenos Aires School of Agriculture, one of the oldest and most prestigious agricultural institutions in South America. Choose from courses in Agricultural Economics, Agronomy, and Environmental Studies.

While in Buenos Aires, you’ll live in homestays, where you’ll be provided with 2 meals a day during the week. On the weekends, participate in course-related excursions that take you out of the classroom and immerse you in Argentina’s agriculture and local environment. Complete lab work relevant to the agricultural markets of Argentina, and participate in IES Abroad-organized field trips to such locales as Colonia del Sacramento and San Pedro. All of this – and more – awaits you in Buenos Aires.
