Academic Program


6 Semester Credits

This program offers high intermediate and advanced Spanish speakers the opportunity study abroad in Buenos Aires. Students complete two cultural electives related to art, literature, and culture in Argentina and Latin America.

All students will complete an online written placement test prior to departure.  Students who do not demonstrate a high level of Spanish will be asked to consider the Intensive Language program at the Universidad de Belgrano.

NOTE: This session is referred to as ‘Summer 2’ due to the overlap with the Summer 2 Intensive Language Program at the Universidad de Belgrano.



API students receive a transcript from the Universidad de Belgrano upon completion of their program.
