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.

Class Format

CIEE faculty at the CIEE Center and are for CIEE students only.  Classes are scheduled Monday-Friday and meet either three, four, or five times per week.  Attendance is strictly enforced for both 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 Canvas e-learning platform.

Grading

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