Location & Culture

Click to Open

Founded in 1536, this bustling metropolis reveals influence of Europe and the Middle East. A vibrant port city, Buenos Aires is also the world’s leading Spanish language publishing hub. Travelers enjoy world-class museums and restaurants, exceptional architecture, and a rousing nightlife. With weather that is pleasantly mild, year-round, Buenos Aires is always ready for exploration by bike, public transportation, or on foot - one of the many reasons it was voted “the number-one city to visit” in Latin America.

The Culture

Study Tours

Embark on a two-night/three-day study tour included in your program during each block. Students might visit Bariloche or Mendoza or other destinations such as Puerto Iguazú (home to the Iguazu Falls, one of the seven natural wonders), Córdoba (the second most important city in Argentina) or Salta (the capital city of the provence).

Excursions & Activities

During your Open Campus Program you’ll engage in a number of activities.

  • Participate in an overnight Study Tour in Argentina during each block. Students may visit different sites outside the city of Buenos Aires to explore the differences between the city and the countryside, such as ancient indigenous treasures, breathtaking mountain scenery, vast salt flats, and much more.
  • Enjoy Buenos Aires like a local, by attending a festival or a soccer match or simply be a witness of a rich Latin American culture in motion with tango dance and live theatre performances.
  • Take advantage of nearby sites of interest that provide participants with a broader understanding of the region.
  • Get involved in the city’s vibrant live by joining a student club or a sports team.

Projects, Volunteer Opportunities, or Internships

  • Volunteer Opportunities: volunteer at a local nonprofit or non-governmental organization involved in social policy, human rights, community service, and public health matters, among others. Responsibilities may include teaching English to children of low socio-economic communities, helping people with disabilities, supporting the work of a city library, or coordinating local/regional conferences.

Students interested in one of the following Academic Projects must submit additional materials as part of their course selection:

  • Service-Learning:  combine course-based learning with practical, relevant project experience to meet a community-defined need.
  • Research: pursue a research project of your own design incorporating independent and local fieldwork.

What you need to know

The program details

Students enroll in one, two, or three six-week blocks, taking two courses during each block. This program gives students the flexibility to stay in Buenos Aires the entire time or spend other blocks at our Global Institute locations in Cape Town, Copenhagen, Berlin, London, Madrid, Monteverde, Paris, Rio de Janeiro, Rome, Santiago, Shanghai, Sydney, and Yucatan.

This program offers students a series of courses designed to help students explore the dynamics of this Latin American nation and its culture.  Students may select one of six academic tracks: Business; Communications, Journalism, and New Media; Global and Community Health; International Relations and Political Science; Language, Literature, and Culture; or STEM and Society.

Courses are mostly taught in English by CIEE faculty; Spanish language classes are available at multiple different levels.

Academics

Academics

  • CLASS FORMAT

    Courses taught at the CIEE Global Institute are typically for CIEE students only. Classes are scheduled Monday-Friday and meet either two, three, or four times per week, and attendance is strictly enforced both for classes and required co-curricular excursions. Students should expect an average of two hours of preparation required for each hour in class. Instruction is supported and augmented online by our learning management system, Canvas.

  • GRADING

    The U.S. grading scale of A-F is used. Students’ grades are based on attendance, class participation, homework, project work, presentations, and midterm and final examinations. Learning outcomes assessment is continuous through personal reflections, evaluation feedback, self-assessment, and requirements as set out in course syllabi.

  • ACADEMIC CULTURE

    Each course is a full semester in content, so the pace is accelerated, and the workload is demanding. CIEE courses are designed to follow U.S. academic culture and standards. The class environment typically features a combination of traditional lecture and discussion with co-curricular excursions and activities. Heavy emphasis is placed on student participation. To avoid falling behind, students should not plan personal travel out of Buenos Aires when classes are in session and plan trips for the long weekends in between blocks.
