More Information


Study in the South American country with a uniquely European flair!

You’ll traverse the picturesque neighborhoods of Buenos Aires, the riverfront city of Corrientes and stop by one of the most splendid natural wonders at the border of Uruguay and Brazil... the Iguazu Falls!  And all while exploring the vast and unique histories of Argentine literature, culture, and politics. 

Your program begins with courses in NYC just prior to departing for South America where you will continue at the Instituto de Literatura Hispanoamericana, part of the University of Buenos Aires, before moving on to Corrientes and the Iguazú Falls.  By traversing the immense capital city, along with the seven peninsulas of Corrientes and the sub-tropical rainforest of Argentina's northern border, you’ll gain broad knowledge of a country greatly influenced by the confluence of its varied immigrant and indigenous populations, which continues to shape the socio-political landscape of Latin America.

Program dates:  Travel dates are June 20 to July 8, 2017, followed by a final week of coursework in New York.
