Program Overview

 Buenos Aires, Argentina's vibrant capital has long been considered one of the cultural treasures of South America.  A walk through the streets reveals a mosaic of architectural styles; Buenos Aires is the port city, the tango city, and the city of endless cafes. USF collaborates with the Asociación Internacional de Estudios (AIE) of Buenos Aires, a Center of Tuition of the University of London, to offer USF credit for Spanish language studies and Latin American literary and cultural studies in Buenos Aires.  The five-week program aims to offer Spanish language, culture and literature instruction for those with sufficient proficiency to receive instruction in Spanish and to offer academic credit for Latin American cultural studies for those students who do not have such proficiency.
Central to the program will be the study of issues that are relevant to Latin American language, cultural and literary production and, more specifically, to the Argentine cultural experience. Students will enhance their oral and written proficiency in Spanish through coursework and active exposure to target language and will actively participate in a rich cultural environment and will develop various stages of intercultural competence and global awareness and will learn about and experience Latin American culture in general, and more specifically about the history, politics, and literature of the host country.  Studies will not be confined to the classroom, but will be enriched by encounters with the cultural life of Buenos Aires. Students will visit museums, art galleries, and theater. Excursions and strolls will put students in touch with its history as well as the present. Dr. Pablo Brescia, USF Department of World Languages Associate Professor and a native of Buenos Aires, will accompany students on the program.
