Princeton in Argentina


Universidad Torcuato Di Tella

The Department of Spanish and Portuguese offers a study abroad summer program in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in collaboration with the Universidad Torcuato Di Tella (UTDT). The program will feature six weeks of instruction, designed and coordinated by Princeton faculty. In order to facilitate intensive culture and language immersion, all students will stay with host families. For those students who are interested, the program will offer opportunities to do volunteer work at local non-profit organizations, or take side trips to historical or natural sites in the area. Dates for Princeton in Argentina 2020 TBD

Buenos Aires offers an ideal setting for a summer study abroad program. It is a very safe city in comparison with other Latin American metropolises and it remains one of the most affordable choices in terms of transportation, accommodations, and meals. It has an extraordinarily vibrant intellectual life and a rich popular and political culture. It will provide our students with the opportunity to consider and examine many of the most pressing current social and political issues. Read more about the study abroad experience from past participants.
