About

Study on the Colombian Caribbean coast at Universidad del Norte.  Go beyond the classroom alongside Colombian youth to create beneficial partnerships in local nonprofits or health clinics.

Enroll in a course alongside Colombian students at Universidad del Norte. Choose between two tracks — Social Immersion/Anthropology or Global Health — then spend six weeks in a practicum, either with a nonprofit organization or a clinic.  College only.


  • OVERVIEW: GLOBAL HEALTH: Students enroll in Universidad del Norte (UNINORTE) for three weeks of coursework, including “Spanish for Health Practitioners” as well as “Global and Community Health Issues in Colombia.” Upon completion of coursework, students will be placed in a health clinic in the Barranquilla area and will carry out a five week practicum focused on health promotion and disease prevention. This track is a good fit for pre-med students or students interested in studying public health. There are no pre-requisites for the Global Health Track.


  • OVERVIEW: SOCIAL IMMERSION/ANTHROPOLOGY: Students enroll in Universidad del Norte (UNINORTE) for two weeks of coursework on social immersion and service learning from an anthropological perspective. Upon completion of coursework, students live and work in a community for six weeks and are assigned to a service initiative with a local non-profit organization. Colombian university students from UNINORTE’s campus volunteer organization, Univoluntarios, serve side-by-side with AMIGOS participants for the duration of the program.
