This program is for you if you are interested in improving your Spanish or gaining a deeper understanding of Argentine and Latin American culture and need to fulfill liberal education requirements. If you need two years of language to get a BA, the Language and Culture in Buenos Aires is a great way to study beginning and intermediate Spanish.

Semester students can choose from 1000 to 3000-level Spanish courses, elective courses taught in English, and a service-learning course. Winter Break students select one course -- either ARGN 1003, ARGN 1004 or ARGN 3015 depending on their level of proficiency. During the summer, only the Spanish language courses are offered.
