Argentina


Just a reminder: the deadline for priority consideration of applications for the Argentina Study Abroad program is November 16 at 5 p.m. We will continue to accept applications thereafter but don't wait too long - there's only space for 12 students total. Students from all 3 UW campuses are welcome to apply.

The Argentina study abroad program consists of two courses:

The Geography of Buenos Aires (T URB 379 - Urban Field Experience) will primarily involve field work throughout the city, examining a range of topics related to Buenos Aires. Examples include the history and architecture of the city, social issues such as homelessness, environmental issues especially as relates to water pollution, and economic problems confronting the metropolitan area. The course will involve site visits around the city and include academic exercises on these various topics.

The program also includes a Spanish language learning course at the Universidad de Tres de Febrero. This is a beginner's course and will help students communicate with their host families and navigate the city.

For students with Spanish language skills, there is the option to do an internship with Hecho en Buenos Aires, an organization that works with the homeless and produces the publication by the same name. The magazine is sold by the homeless to the general public. Interns may work in the publications office or directly with the homeless depending on their interests.
