- Program Description:
Santiago's urban and natural framework, its mountainous terrain, and its proximity to Chile's central coastline are ideal for experiencing the nature and culture of the most southern country in the world. You'll have the opportunity to study Spanish language and contemporary Chilean society through a wide selection of academic courses, as well as personal interaction and immersion in the host culture.
This program offers two diverse academic areas: Spanish Language and Latin American Studies. The intensive language approach allows you to complete up to two years of university foreign language coursework in only one semester. You may choose to study for one semester or a full year and meet Spanish minor or major requirements. You may complement your language curriculum by taking courses in literature, art, cinema, photography, architecture and urbanism, history, sociology, political science, economics, women's studies, community development, anthropology, native cultures, astronomy, and technology.
Program fees include tuition, 2-day orientation, some field trips in and around Santiago, some entries to museums and cultural events, and health insurance.
- Setting Description:
- Santiago is flanked on the east by the lofty Cordillera de Los Andes with its snow-covered peaks, and on the west by the Cordillera de la Costa. It is a city of contrasts: its eighteenth-century and nineteenth-century buildings stand side by side with modern skyscrapers; its long shady avenues mingle with busy roads; and its plazas and parks are tranquil oases in the midst of the bustling metropolis.
