About this program: Founded under the auspices and vision of the Chilean entrepreneur, Don Federico Santa María Carrera, the University was founded with the intent to provide opportunities for academically-gifted Chilean students to study science and technology, regardless of their social class. Today the University is recognized as one of the best universities in Chile for science, engineering and technology. Visiting students may study the humanities and social science with Chilean students and complete business, science and engineering courses with local students at more advanced levels. The UTFSM (which Chileans refer to simply as the USM) main campus is like a US campus, with academic, athletic and social buildings all in the same area, so international students have a great deal of interaction with their Chilean counterparts. USM features both classical and modern architecture and is surrounded by grassy areas where students can relax and socialize. There are top-notch athletic facilities, including an outdoor pool, soccer fields and such.
USM recommends courses in business, engineering, informatics, and humanities (although USM doesn’t offer degrees in Humanities, they offer a number of courses on subjects such as Literature, Spanish Language, German Language, Mandarin Language, History, and Philosophy).
Students typically enroll in 4-5 classes per term which averages to 15 hours in class per week. A term runs for 16 weeks.
