Santiago, both the capital and largest city in Chile, bustles with activity and is home to more than a third of the nation’s inhabitants. Despite its large size, Santiago’s extensive public transport system, including an underground subway, makes it an easy city to navigate. Founded in 1541, the city is nestled in a plain between the Andes Mountains. It is the country’s political, cultural and economic center and boasts all of the corresponding attractions. Students will enjoy its incredible views, where the city’s skyscrapers and surrounding mountains can be admired from afar, as well as its museums, historic sites, shopping centers and restaurants.
Programs in Santiago Include:
Multidisciplinary Studies for Advanced Spanish Speakers: The Integrated Studies program at the Universidad Alberto Hurtado (UAH) offers advanced Spanish speaking students the opportunity to take courses alongside their Chilean peers. All students selecting the early-start option (available for fall and academic year students) or the January Intersession option (available for spring and calendar year students) will complete an intensive Spanish language course in combination with coursework in Spanish. The intensive course consists of three weeks of study during the fall session (the second semester in Chile) and four weeks during the U.S. spring semester (the first semester in Chile). A language placement exam and course registration will take place during the on-site orientation, immediately prior to the start of the standard semester.
Jan Term in Santiago: Students wishing to study Spanish language and culture intensively at the advanced level are ideally suited to the January Intersession Program.
