  • Colonia del Sacramento

    A brief trip from Buenos Aires by ferry, Colonia has a unique history as the only Portuguese settlement along the Río de la Plata. Founded in 1680, it was originally seen as a threat to the Spanish settlers and the port had to operate in secret violation of Spanish laws. Today, the city is still a functioning port for a prosperous agricultural region of Uruguay. The city has a historic center with cobblestone streets and picturesque architecture. Its Barrio Historico was recognized by UNESCO and named as a heritage site in the mid-1990s.

  • Estancia Visit

    A trip to Argentina would not be complete with only a visit to its capital city of Buenos Aires. Aside from the attractions of Buenos Aires, Argentina is known for its cattle, its wines, and its grains. Argentine legends and mythology often refer to the mysterious life of the Argentine cowboy, known as the gaucho. Located a few hours from the city, local estancias, or ranches, are a wonderful introduction to the Argentine countryside; their tranquility and open spaces contrast with the bustle of Buenos Aires and will give students a completely different vision of life in Argentina.

  • Tigre

    Located less than 20 miles outside the heart of Buenos Aires, Tigre was founded in the first half of the 1800s on an island created by the local streams and rivers. Its name is derived from its history as an area where early settlers hunted jaguars. Today the port is most known for its craft fair, known as the “Puerto de Frutos.”

What You’ll Study

TOTAL CREDITS - 12-15 credits per semester (18-21 credits per early start semester)

Students interested in Argentine and Latin American culture, economics, history, and politics are ideally suited to the study abroad in Buenos Aires in API’s Program of Argentine and Latin American Studies. The program caters to students at all levels of Spanish.

EARLY START OPTION

Students selecting the Early Start option complete an intensive Spanish language course prior to the start of the standard semester. The intensive Spanish course consists of five hours of Spanish class, 4-5 days a week. Each intensive course is equivalent to 3-7 semester credits, depending on how credit is awarded by the home university. Once the regular semester starts, beginning and low intermediate Spanish speakers complete all coursework in English.

Students with a minimum of three semesters of Spanish or the equivalent can choose to complete a combination of Spanish language courses and elective courses in English or Spanish. All courses are equivalent to 3 U.S. semester credits.

COURSES WITH ARGENTINE STUDENTS

Students with advanced Spanish language skills are welcome to select as many as 4 courses with Argentine students. Though the standard Argentine semester is 3-4 weeks longer than the academic calendar for visiting students, API students who select courses with Argentines may do so without any extra fees.

ACADEMIC YEAR STUDENTS

The Argentine academic calendar follows the calendar year. The first semester in Argentina is actually the equivalent of the spring semester in the U.S. Students who wish to study for two semesters in Argentina are encouraged to consider the Calendar Year option (spring/fall). Students selecting a Calendar Year program have access to API housing throughout their program and are not required to travel or return home during the semester break. In contrast, students selecting the Academic Year option (fall/spring) will have a 3-3.5 month break between semesters during which API housing is not provided. Both Early Start options include an intensive-month Spanish course prior to the start of the first semester.

U.S. – Latin America

This course begins by examining the U.S. and Latin American from the Wars of Independence and the emergence of Latin America’s nation-states to U.S. expansion southwards at the beginning of the 20th century. However, the 19th century is discussed mainly to shed light on the processes of policy formation that occurred as the U.S. emerged as a world power during the 20th century. The bulk of the course thus concentrates on the impact of the two World Wars, the Cold War, and the current post-Cold War transition. The course highlights specific moments and crises, as well as the major figures that shaped inter-American and some lesser-known actors.

The bulk of the course thus concentrates on the impact of the two World Wars, the Cold War, and the current post-Cold War transition.

Culture and Social Change in Argentina

Departing from the notion that artistic creation is the battleground where perceptions, ideologies and identity formation play a central role, this course will focus on the different ways in which social change shapes and transform the arts during the XX and XXI centuries in Argentina.This course seeks to problematize the complex relationship --be it sometimes a dialogue, some other times contested debates that could go well beyond rhetoric into bloodshed--between the arts and the conflictive history of social change in our country. The course also aims at analyzing in depth the ways in which the arts represent, contest, silence or resist the fundamental social and cultural issues of their times: populisms, dictatorships, state terrorism, revolutionary groups, avant-gardes. Our sources will be tango (visual and lyrics), melodrama, painting, artistic performances, documentaries, etc.
