The program details

Stay in Santiago de Chile for the duration of this unique study abroad experience, or add on blocks in other CIEE Open Campus locations (Berlin, Buenos Aires, Cape Town, Copenhagen, London, Madrid, Paris, Rome, or Rio de Janeiro) to experience more intercultural learning with CIEE’s unique Global Scholar program.

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: Language, Literature & Culture, Business, Communications, Journalism & New Media, Global & Community Health, International Relations & Political Science, or Sustainability and Environmental Sciences.

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 are graded on the basis of 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 Santiago when classes are in session and plan trips for the long weekends in between blocks.

Eligibility

  • OVERALL GPA

    Students need to have a GPA of at least 2.5.
