Program Notes
All applicants must have a valid passport by the program’s application deadline. Your passport’s expiration date must be more than six months after the program ends. If you do not have a current passport, apply through the U.S. State Department. It takes an average of 6-8 weeks (2 months) to process a passport.

Traveling and studying abroad at this time poses new challenges and requires accepting a higher level of uncertainty than in the past. Students who choose to study abroad must be prepared to adapt to evolving situations and must take responsibility to act in accordance with the rules, regulations, and recommendations of UD, their program leadership, and legal authorities of their home and host country which are subject to change at any time.

The University will continue to monitor the ongoing situation with COVID-19 (coronavirus) and world events as we approach the departure date for this program. Please reach out to your program coordinator or faculty director with questions and continue to monitor the UD coronavirus webpage for updates. If UD decides to cancel a study abroad program, we will communicate directly with affected students.
Program Description

Chile represents a unique creative and diverse landscape climate in which to study art. Our studies will take us to the Andes mountains, the modern, metropolitan city of Santiago, and the coastal, hillside city of Valparaiso. Each location offers a unique standpoint from which to engage in the diverse and specific regional culture and geographical climate. Where else can you travel from the towering Andes landscape, to the Pacific coastline in 3 hours? The cultural landscape is just as diverse, presenting environmental, educational and political views imbued in the regional creative, art scene of each location. Furthermore, we will be visiting Chile during their summer period, thus being able to enjoy a more suitable Andean climate.

Based in Santiago and Valparaiso, we will interact with artists and musicians as we study art, photography, printmaking, culture and artists’ use of memory in relating personal and societal history. In addition, we will learn about Spanish, Andean, Basque and U.S. influences on music, food, politics, architecture and history through visits to galleries, museums, artist collectives and workshops. We will hike parts of the Andes mountain range, stroll the avenues of Santiago’s modern and colonial influenced architecture and explore the hills and beach-lined coast of Valparaiso.

The Program Fee includes accommodations in shared-room apartments In Santiago and Valparaiso with cooking facilities, a subway pass, excursions, entrances to museums, workshops, visits to local artist studios, galleries and collectives and in country transportation between locations in the Andes, Santiago and Valparaiso. We will spend a weekend camping in the Andes (with food provided). All in country transportation is included with weekly group dinners included throughout the trip. Students will be responsible for the remainder of their meals, but emphasis on exploring local food and markets will be included in the trip’s programing to give students an understanding of local food and where and how to get it.

The Program Fee does not include airfare to/from Chile, nor airport transfers within the U.S. The program officially begins when students arrive in Chile. Students will receive detailed instructions after acceptance, explaining how and where to purchase their plane tickets. For this program, students will be given recommended flight itineraries for traveling together. See the Cost section below for estimated airfare.

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.
