About

With its European influence, South American vibe, and cosmopolitan chic, Buenos Aires is an incredible place to spend the summer. Grand avenues with French architecture and colonial Spanish influence dominate the entire city. Food from many nations is plentiful and delicious. And everyone is dressed up—even just to window shop.

The summer Argentina Cultural Studies Program immerses students in Latin American studies, with courses focusing on Argentine culture, journalism, politics, literature, and recent literary and intellectual developments. As of Summer, students have the option to do an internship in a cultural organization, an NGO, as well as in journalism or communication.

Unlike other BU programs that offer central housing, the Argentina program provides housing with host families throughout Buenos Aires. Placement in Argentine households facilitates language acquisition and integrates students into Argentine society and culture.

The program offers students the opportunity to live and study in Buenos Aires, Argentina’s intellectual and cultural capital and one of Latin America’s most sophisticated cities. It is home to many museums, theaters, art galleries, and bookstores.

Courses focus on Argentine culture, journalism, politics, and literature, and include discussion of recent literary and intellectual developments. An internship course will be added in summer with placements in cultural organizations, NGOs, and in the areas of journalism and communication. Classes will take place at the Universidad de Palermo. Course-related excursions will provide students with an opportunity to explore the city’s vibrant cultural scene.
