The capital of Peru is home to gorgeous beaches, modern buildings, and can’t-miss restaurants. It’s also a gold mine of firsthand lessons in world history. You’ll see Incan archeological sites, pre-Inca ruins, and Spanish Baroque cathedrals – all in one fascinating location. Lima’s colonial legacy is reflected in its main square featuring numerous ornately constructed churches, and historical homes with elaborately carved wooden balconies. This city of ten million people is located on Peru’s Pacific coast and includes diverse neighborhoods sprawling out from the colonial center. Peruvian music, renowned cuisine, coastal geography, and a fascinating history all make for a rich experience for study abroad students.

The program details

Established in 2007, this program is designed for intermediate and advanced students who want to advance their study of Spanish language by taking classes taught in Spanish alongside Peruvian students, and explore Peruvian history, mestizaje, ethnic identities, globalization, poverty, and Peru’s modern culture.

Students who stay for an academic year can also complete a Peruvian Studies Certificate issued by Pontifícia Universidad Católica del Perú by completing humanities and social science courses that focus on Peru.

Pontifícia Universidad Católica del Peru (PUCP). Founded in 1917, PUCP is ranked as one of the top 25 universities in Latin America and is the country’s oldest and most prestigious university. The beautiful 90-acre campus with extensive, well-kept gardens is located surprisingly right in San Miguel, a busy commercial district. The campus has everything from lively student cafeterias to an archaeological site, as well as a number of research centers for its 18,000 students.

Students agree to speak only Spanish during the program to encourage language and cultural acquisition.

Courses are taught by PUCP faculty members.

Academics

Academics

  • CLASS FORMAT

    Class size ranges from 20 to 100 students, with most averaging 20 to 30. Direct-enrollment courses at PUCP include Peruvian students. CIEE classes are only open to CIEE students.

  • GRADING

    CIEE courses, including Spanish: Students are graded based on class participation, homework assignments, quizzes, mid-terms, final exams and papers. PUCP courses: Students are graded like Peruvian students. Final grades are determined by a combination of papers, midterms, and a final paper or exam. The Peruvian grading scale goes from 1 to 20; 11 is passing. The CIEE Lima staff converts grades and credits to the U.S. system.

  • ACADEMIC CULTURE

    Students notice striking differences between education systems, and need to adjust to a more formal setting where students need to independently acquire reading materials, take copious notes, and focus more on memorization. Peruvian students begin their academic studies with two years of fulfilling general education requirements and then studying in a specialized field for three years. Courses outside of the general education requirements are equivalent to upper-level courses in the U.S. CIEE academic-year students can begin during the North American fall or spring semester. Fall-start students have a two and a half-month break between semesters. There is a break of about two weeks between spring and fall semesters. The first semester of the academic year in Lima begins in late February and ends in early July, and the second semester begins in late July and ends in early December.
