Program Overview

Program Description:
Intended for students with 5 semesters of college-level Spanish, the direct enrollment structure of the School in Argentina provides students with the opportunity to increase their language abilities through constant interaction with native speakers. Whether spending time with local students in their classes, their colleagues at an internship placement, or in their homestays, students use their language in a very real immersion environment.

While in Córdoba, students take courses alongside their Argentine peers at the Universidad Nacional de Córdoba. Available subject areas span the spectrum from the humanities to the social sciences to the natural sciences, and they host Schools specifically dedicated to Psychology, Architecture, Science, Health, and foreign languages.

Participants in the C.V. Starr-Middlebury Schools Abroad don’t just study a language—they live it. Many of our students major in disciplines other than foreign languages, yet all bring a level of proficiency that supports their commitment to language and cultural immersion. They sign and honor the Middlebury Language Pledge because they want the greatest possible challenge in a study abroad program and an authentic experience in every respect; academic, social, and even professional. Participants take courses in most subjects with host country students, intern or engage in volunteer work, and live with a host family. Indeed, at every juncture of their time abroad, students have the chance to "live the language" and immerse themselves in the host culture.

Once the Cultural Capital of the Americas, Córdoba is a hive of activity with concerts, art exhibitions and theatrical performances covering every second of every day. The city's many churches span the spectrum of European architecture – from simple brick structures rinsed in pink paint to a cavernous temple whose wooden roof resembles an inverted ship's hull. Founded in 1573, Cordoba is now the second largest city in Argentina. It is also the country's second most important city, with an economy mainly based on industrial activity and tourism. Surrounded by hills, lakes and valleys, its lo
