Academic Program

TOTAL CREDIT HOURS

Early Start Semester

18 semester credits

Semester

12 semester credits

Students interested in studying abroad in Buenos Aires and completing courses alongside Argentine peers within an urban university are ideally suited for this program. Students can select from 16 courses offered in English with local Argentine students, or complete courses specially designed for visiting international students, including Spanish language. Advanced Spanish speakers may choose to complete integrated courses in Spanish with local students.

EARLY START OPTION

Students selecting the Early Start option complete an intensive Spanish language course prior to the start of the standard semester. The intensive Spanish course consists of a 100 hours of class over a total of 4 weeks.

SPANISH LANGUAGE OPTIONS

Students may complete a semester-long Spanish language course with other visiting international students.

COURSES WITH ARGENTINE STUDENTS

Students with more limited Spanish skills may complete courses in English alongside Argentine students in the following areas: art history, economics, international relations, journalism, literature, and political science. Students with advanced Spanish language skills may complete courses in Spanish with local students in Asian Studies, business and economics, education, history, geography, philosophy, psychology, and tourism studies.

ACADEMIC YEAR STUDENTS

The Argentine academic calendar follows the calendar year. The first semester in Argentina is actually the equivalent of the spring semester in the U.S. Students who wish to study for two semesters in Argentina are encouraged to consider the Calendar Year option (spring/fall). Students selecting a Calendar Year program have access to API housing throughout their program and are not required to travel or return home during the semester break. In contrast, students selecting the Academic Year option (fall/spring) will have a 3-3.5 month break between semesters during which API housing is not provided. Both Early Start options include an intensive-month Spanish course prior to the start of the first semester.

TRANSCRIPTS

API students receive a transcript from the Universidad del Salvador upon completion of their program.
