The Córdoba Summer Term consists of a four-week Intensive Language and Culture session and is located at Argentina's oldest university, Universidad Nacional de Córdoba (UNC). During this time, you take an intensive language and culture course, while discovering the culture and people of Argentina. Advanced students may also choose to participate in an internship or service learning opportunity during their summer term.
The Spanish Studies Resident Director and UNC's PECLA (Programa de Español y Cultura Latinoamericana) staff guide you through this process of discovery by regular contact with Spanish Studies students and organizing special cultural activities.
Students have the option to choose one 80-hour intensive language course, one or two 45-hour content courses, or an internship or service learning opportunity. In addition to coursework, the program includes a home stay, cultural visits within Córdoba, a cultural day-trip to the estancias jesuíticas, and an overnight three-day trip to Buenos Aires.
