Program Description

Santiago, Chile is an excellent site for a study abroad program. Santiago is Chile’s capital and its political, cultural and financial center. Home to several major universities, it is a large city, yet it has an almost provincial atmosphere. The city is surrounded by vineyards, and is within a few hours of both the mountains and the Pacific Ocean. The Andes mountains can be seen from most points in Santiago.

All classes are held at the Manuel Montt campus (located in the Providencia neighborhood) of Universidad Mayor.  Classroom material will be complemented by visits to museums, historical sites and three-day weekend excursions to  San Pedro de Atacama dessert (the driest dessert in the world), and a visit to the main port city of Valparaiso and adjacent Viña del Mar (a placid resort and one of the most internationally recognized cities in Chile).

Students must enroll in all courses for credit and a grade; pass/fail and audit registration is not permitted.  All students must enroll in 6 credits, as well as the 0-credit UNIV course.

The Program Fee includes in-country transportation, all group excursions, room and board and international medical insurance. Students will be housed in pairs in private Chilean homes in the Providencia neighborhood of Santiago, within walking distance or a short bus or metro ride to the campus. The Metro de Santiago is South America's most extensive subway system. Bedding and linens will be provided, as well as three meals daily.

The Program Fee does NOT include airfare to or from Chile, nor airport transfers within the U.S. The program officially begins when students arrive in Santiago. Students will receive detailed travel instructions after acceptance, explaining how and where to purchase their plane ticket. See the Cost section below for estimate airfare.  For this program, plane tickets have been reserved for the group, and students are strongly encouraged to purchase as part of the group reservation.

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.
