Argentina Study Abroad Program

Córdoba is recognized as a center for arts and learning in Argentina with its many universities, theaters, and museums. Argentina's second largest city and the region's early capital, Córdoba is a bustling educational and commercial center set at the foothills of the Sierra Chica mountain range in northern Argentina. Saint Mary’s College has an affiliation with Spanish Studies Abroad, which offers true cultural immersion experience in Córdoba.

The Córdoba Program offers three enrollment options: summer, semester, and academic year. Students will engage in an exceptional opportunity for semester study at the distinguished Universidad Nacional de Córdoba (UNC). The semester program offers students a variety of courses within a broad spectrum of disciplines. Students enroll in 1-2 integrated courses with Argentine students at UNC and 2-3 courses designed for international students. The summer term consists of a one-month intensive language and culture session at Universidad Nacional de Córdoba (UNC).  In addition to 60 hours of classroom instruction, the summer program includes a home stay, cultural excursions and a three-day trip to Buenos Aires.

Eligibility and Requirements

Saint Mary’s students wishing to study in Córdoba must have completed two semesters of intermediate Spanish with a minimum of a 3.0 (B) average in Spanish courses and have an overall GPA of 3.0.
