Argentina Study Abroad
Argentina: Society, Politics, and International Relations
June 17-July 12, 2024
LACC’s Society, Politics, and International Relations in Argentina study abroad program is an intensive four-week program designed to foster an understanding of Latin American international relations through the experience of living and studying in one of the most vibrant cosmopolitan cities in the Americas. Open to both undergraduate and graduate students, the program takes an interdisciplinary approach to the study of the region. Students register for two courses, International Relations of Latin America and History, Politics, Society and Culture of Argentina, for a total of 6 credits. Course requirements for undergraduate and graduate students vary accordingly. All classes are held in Buenos Aires. In addition to classroom instruction, students participate in field trips to various locations of cultural and/or historical importance throughout Buenos Aires.
Known as one of the world’s most beautiful cities and with a population of nearly 12 million inhabitants, Buenos Aires is a cosmopolitan, diverse and exciting destination. Students may explore the city’s rich cultural life through the varied neighborhoods, including the famed Europeanesque Recoleta, the theater district of Corrientes, the bustling Microcentro, trend-setting Palermo, historic San Telmo, and the immigrant enclaves of Once and La Boca, among others. Despite its size, the city is very accessible, pedestrian-friendly and generally safe. The months of June and July coincide with Argentina’s autumn; days are typically bright and crisp and the evenings are cool.
While in Buenos Aires, students live with Argentine families in the neighborhoods of La Recoleta, Palermo and Barrio Norte. Through their host families, students may experience Buenos Aires as a local, while benefiting from the opportunity to immerse themselves in Argentine culture and speak Spanish daily. The 2023 program will include homestay accommodations in the neighborhoods of La Recoleta and Barrio with proper COVID measures.
