Academic Program

TOTAL CREDIT HOURS

Early Start Semester

12-16 semester credit hours

Semester

12 semester credit hours

Additional courses may be taken for an extra fee

The Universidad Torcuato di Tella is known among Argentines for its academic quality. Students will enjoy the benefits of a small-campus feel and small to moderate class sizes. The Humanities and Social Sciences Program offers two tracks: one for students who prefer to take some or all coursework in English and an advanced track for students who prefer to take all of their coursework in Spanish. Regardless of the track selected, all students selecting the early start option will begin the program with a four-week, intensive Spanish language and Argentine culture course (equivalent to four U.S. semester credits). This course is designed to help visiting international students review grammatical concepts, perfect their writing and gain a more in-depth view of Argentine life and culture.

TRACK 1

Students who wish to complete some or all coursework in English during the standard semester will select track 1. Students can choose to complete up to three courses in English or take a combination of courses in English and Spanish. Some courses in Spanish are offered primarily for visiting international students, while other courses can be completed with Argentine peers. Students who wish to take a fourth course during the semester will be charged an additional fee.

TRACK 2

Students selecting track 2 have the option of completing all of their coursework with local Argentine students in Spanish or selecting from a limited number of courses that are designed for visiting international students but taught in Spanish. All UTDT courses are generally equivalent to 4 U.S. semester credits, and students typically complete 2-3 courses during the semester. Students who wish to take a fourth course during the semester will be charged an additional fee.

ACADEMIC AND CALENDAR 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) rather than the traditional Academic Year option (fall/spring). 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 an Academic Year option will have approximately a 2-month break between semesters during which API housing is not provided.

TRANSCRIPTS

API students receive a transcript from the Universidad Torcuato di Tella upon completion of their program.
