UGA en Buenos Aires is a Spanish immersion program based in the vibrant and cosmopolitan capital city of Argentina, that combines a great cultural offer, entertainment for everyone, delicious gastronomy, fascinating history, and human warmth. Our goals are to foster students´ communicative abilities in Spanish in authentic contexts, to deepen their understanding of Argentina and Latin America, and to improve their analytical and writing skills in Spanish. These abilities are professionally and personally valuable for those aspiring to work in Latin America or with Latino communities in the U.S. Students achieve these goals through Service Learning and Internship opportunities, homestay families, a rigorous academic program with professors from UGA and Universidad de Buenos Aires, and a rich cultural activities program.
