Program Notes
Program Description
Are you adventurous? Do you love the outdoors? Are you interested in a physically active program where your classroom is the mountains and glaciers? Then why don’t you consider the interconnection of ecotourism and culture in a study abroad to Argentina?

In the International Sport & Tourism course (SPTM 367) course, students explore the Patagonia region of Argentina, a country known for its unique history, culture, and recreational sport tourism. Students will engage first hand with an Argentinian business through a service-learning project on ecotourism and sustainability. As students explore the region, they will examine and solve a sustainability challenge this business faces. Students will experience the sport ecotourism industry in the country first hand, which will help them develop their service learning projects. Students will also have the opportunity to better understand how business and culture intersect in Argentina.

Whether you’re interested in tourism or just want to unleash your adventurous side, the unique culture and environment of Argentina is your chance to explore this topic in a picturesque and distinct location! Join me in Patagonia and learn what active sport ecotourism means first hand! Argentina: the adventurer’s classroom!

The Program Fee includes housing, academic and cultural excursions and international medical insurance. Students reside in double or quad rooms in hotels, with breakfast provided. Several group lunches and dinners will be included each week. Students will be responsible for the remainder of their meals.

The Program Fee does NOT include airfare to/from Argentina, nor airport transfers within the U.S. The program officially begins when students arrive in El Calafate. 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.
