What You’ll Study

TOTAL CREDITS - 12-18 credits per semester

Students interested in studying abroad in Buenos Aires and completing courses alongside Argentine peers within an urban university are ideally suited for this program. Students can select from 16 courses offered in English with local Argentine students, or complete courses specially designed for visiting international students, including Spanish language. Advanced Spanish speakers may choose to complete integrated courses in Spanish with local students.

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 a 100 hours of class over a total of 4 weeks.

SPANISH LANGUAGE OPTIONS

Students may complete a semester-long Spanish language course with other visiting international students.

COURSES WITH ARGENTINE STUDENTS

Students with more limited Spanish skills may complete courses in English alongside Argentine students in the following areas: art history, economics, international relations, journalism, literature, and political science. Students with advanced Spanish language skills may complete courses in Spanish with local students in Asian Studies, business and economics, education, history, geography, philosophy, psychology, and tourism studies.

SERVICE-LEARNING OPTION

Students have the option of taking a service-learning course reviewing Urban Inequalities in Latin America during this program.

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.

TRANSCRIPTS

API students receive a transcript from the Universidad del Salvador upon completion of their program.

TEACHING OPPORTUNITY - "SHARE YOUR LANGUAGE" - BEGINNING IN FALL 2019

API has collaborated with a government initiative, Share Your Language, to advance opportunities for youth in public schools through promoting bilingualism. By participating in this month-long program during your academic semester in Buenos Aires, you can also be a part of making a positive impact on the community.

API students will gain practical experience in the field of education by combining theoretical teaching methods, class observation, and a chance to act as a lead teacher in two language classes.

Speak with your resident director on site to learn how to apply.

INTERNSHIP OPPORTUNITY - BEGINNING IN SPRING 2020

The government of the city of Buenos Aires, in an effort to further promote international students coming to study in the city, is offering the possibility of completing an internship within a city office. A tutor will be assigned to interns to them during their professional experience and help them to build professional skills! This is an incredible chance to gain working experience abroad, and add an international professional experience to a participant's resume.

Here are some basic details about the internship option:

1) Participants will complete a professional internship for 24 hours/week for a total of two months. Participants will be assigned a tutor during the internship and will receive weekly support and guidance.

2) Participants will get to meet with government representatives in charge of public policy.

3) Participants may be selected to be involved in internships in one of the following city offices: External Commerce and Investment Promotion; Housing Institute; Strategic Management and Institutional Quality; Innovation and Open Government; Environmental Protection Agency; Health; Urban Development and Transport; Secretary of Housing and Social Integration; Sub-Secretary of Human Rights and Cultural Pluralism; General Direction of Family Development; among others.

4) The internship will carry a fee of 5000 pesos (approximately US$135) that would be paid directly by the intern to the city and is not included in the API program fee.

5) Participants must have advanced Spanish skills.

To apply, applicants will need to submit an online application which API will provide. They will also need to collect and submit all of the supplementary materials required, including their acceptance letter from the host university in Buenos Aires, a letter of recommendation, CV/resume in Spanish, letter of interest (minimum 200 words) in Spanish, and certification of your Spanish language skills.

API students participate in several excursions per session designed to help familiarize them with areas of their host city, country, and surrounding region. The following is a listing of all excursions for API Buenos Aires programs. All excursions are subject to change.

  • 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.”

  • 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.”

In Buenos Aires, students live with local host families. Host families serve as a unique introduction into the Argentine culture and may be made up of a retirement-age couple, a single woman with or without children, or a traditional two-parent household. Students are provided with two meals per day (except on weekends), as well as laundry service once per week. Students live in the Palermo, Recoleta, and Belgrano neighborhoods, which are generally 15-45 minutes from their host university.
