ArgentinaProgram Description

LACC’s Politics & International Relations in  Argentina study abroad program is an intensive 4- week program designed to foster an understanding of Latin American international relations and society through the experience of living and studying in one of the most vibrant cosmopolitan cities in the Americas. Open to both undergraduate and graduate students, the program takes an interdisciplinary approach to the study of the region. All classes are held in Buenos Aires. In addition to classroom instruction, students participate in field trips to various locations of cultural and/or historical importance throughout Buenos Aires. Additionally, a 2-day/1-night excursion to UNESCO Natural World Heritage Site, Iguazu National Park exposes students to Argentina’s natural beauty and diversity and one of South America’s most popular sites, Iguazu Falls, and important issues affecting the tri-border region including conservation, exotic species trafficking and indigenous rights.

Location Description

Known as one of the world’s most beautiful cities and with a population of nearly 12 million inhabitants Buenos Aires is a cosmopolitan, diverse and exciting destination. Students may explore the city’s rich cultural life through the varied neighborhoods, including the famed Europeanesque Recoleta, the theater district of Corrientes, the bustling Microcentro, trend-setting Palermo, historic San Telmo, and the immigrant enclaves of Once and La Boca, among others. Despite its size, the city is very accessible, pedestrian-friendly and generally safe. The months of June and July coincide with Argentina’s autumn; the days are typically bright and crisp and the evenings are cool.


While in Buenos Aires, students live with Argentine families. Through their host families, students may experience Buenos Aires as locals, while benefiting from the opportunity to immerse themselves in Argentine culture and speak Spanish daily.
