University of Delaware Institute for Global Studies
Fall 2018: Buenos Aires, Argentina

Program Dates July 20, 2018 - November 10, 2018 (dates are tentative)

Program Overview Participants on the Buenos Aires semester program will experience the rich and varied culture of the cosmopolitan Argentine capital. One of the most influential and populous cities in South America, Buenos Aires is a cultural hub. Stunning architecture, cosmopolitan atmosphere, the latest fashions and trends, intimate side walk cafes, a prized destination for many; it’s no wonder that Buenos Aires is often called the Paris of South America. Buenos Aires abounds with history, culture, diverse neighborhoods and cuisine, and features many beautiful parks including the dynamic Puerto Madero waterfront.
Little Secrets Buenos Aires

The Universidad de Belgrano (UB) will co-host this program. Founded in 1964 and based in the residential district of Belgrano in Buenos Aires, UB has 13 schools offering undergraduate, graduate, continuing and distance education. UB has been a pioneer in many fields and has attracted leading scholars in each academic discipline to its faculty. UB has a student population of over 13,000, 20% of whom are international students representing approximately 40 countries worldwide. The ultra modern campus, in downtown Belgrano, has superb classrooms, libraries, cafeterias and online services. Participants will take classes with other international students as well as American students from other universities. This semester-long study abroad program offers opportunities for more immersive experiences such as community service and projects. Contact the program coordinator for more details about service opportunities.

The Belgrano neighborhood surrounding the university is an upper middle class section of Buenos Aires characterized by tree-lined streets and high-rise apartment buildings. The largest boulevard in the area, Avenida Cabildo, features quaint corner cafes, neighborhood grocery stores, movie theaters and unique specialty shops.

The Institute for Global Studies partners with the Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures for the administration of this program.

Accommodations: students reside with Argentine families in private homes, where breakfast and dinner are provided daily. A professional site director will be available to students at all times for assistance with any academic or personal difficulties. The site director also provides a comprehensive orientation and guidance through the visa process.

Possible excursions include trips to Uruguay, the Sea Coast, a traditional Argentine ranch, Patagonia, or the spectacular Iguazu Falls, as well as many local tours, excursions and social events. Excursions are subject to availability and environmental conditions.

The Program Fee includes airport pick up on day of arrival in Buenos Aires, housing, breakfast and dinner with the host family, group excursions, local tours and activities, access to all Uni. Belgrano services, and 50% off public transportation to and from Uni. Belgrano for classes. Also included is a site director available to students 24/7. Students should budget an extra $100 for books and supplies, and $100 for laundry.

The Program Fee does not include airfare to or from Argentina, airport transfers within the U.S., nor the departure airport transport in November. UD tuition is not included in the program fee, and must be paid separately. The program officially begins when students arrive in Buenos Aires. Students will receive detailed travel instructions after acceptance. Students will be given recommended flight itineraries for traveling together. See the Cost section below for estimated airfare.

ACCESSIBILITY: Participants with disabilities should know that accessibility and accommodation in some program locations may differ from the United States. Transit systems and legacy building construction practices may not meet U.S. accessibility standards, and alternative access to public transportation, buildings, or public sites cannot be guaranteed. But UD students with disabilities are welcome and encouraged to study abroad. Review these questions with the Office of Disability Support Services to determine whether this program can meet your accommodation needs.

Courses: Students must enroll in all credit-bearing courses for a grade. Only the UNIV (zero credit) course may be taken pass/fail. Audit registration is not permitted on UD Travel Study. Please refer to the University Catalog to verify requirements and prerequisites. Honors credit may be available.
