About

Known as “The Switzerland of South America” for its peaceful culture, Uruguay is nestled between South America’s two titans, Argentina and Brazil. The capital, Montevideo, is quickly becoming a travel destination for its thriving cultural scene including rich architecture, sandy beaches, plazas, shops, museums, and restaurants. Known as one of the “coolest” and “most chilled-out” cities, Montevideo reflects the casual attitude that Uruguayans take towards life. Its location makes it convenient to travel to nearby regions such as Buenos Aires and Brazil, and provides a variety of opportunities for day trips around the country. Students will experience this emerging hidden gem firsthand and have a unique opportunity to study and explore the Spanish, Italian, and African cultural influences throughout Uruguay. The Montevideo program offers several diverse academic areas, including Spanish language, Latin American studies, gender studies, agro-business, viticulture and more. The host university, known as ORT, is the first and largest private university in the country with 10,000 students. Students can expect to be welcomed by the locals, taught the Tango and the Bolero, and experience a thriving cosmopolitan city.
