Academic Program

TOTAL CREDIT HOURS

Semester

14-15 semester credits • 224 contact hours

The Intensive Language Program at the Universidad Torcuato di Tella is designed to help students quickly improve their Spanish skills. Participants will complete the equivalent of two levels of language study in just one semester. Levels of Spanish offered include Beginners I and II and Intermediate I and II only.

Each semester is divided into two, seven-week modules. Each module corresponds to one level of Spanish. There is a one-week break between modules. Over the course of the term, students complete a total of 168 contact hours of language study, the equivalent of twelve hours of in-class instruction each week. All students will complete an additional course taught in English entitled “History and Culture of Argentina” for four hours each week to complement their language studies and enhance their understanding of the host country.

 ACADEMIC AND CALENDAR YEAR STUDENTS

Students interested in spending two semesters in Buenos Aires are encouraged to apply to the “Humanities and Social Studies Program” for the second semester.
