With Latin America as your study destination, you will visit countries that represent much more than the origins of Western culture; they embody the diverse forms that this culture can adopt when it comes in contact with indigenous elements, many of which are still present today. Chile - a country that has recently attained one of the highest levels of economic and human development in Latin America - will be your base for exploration during this intellectual and academic journey.
The SU Santiago program offers two options for interested students: the first, which is required for students with fewer than two years of Spanish language study, includes a four-week language intensive in Cuenca, Ecuador before arriving in Santiago. The second option is for students who are already fluent in Spanish to arrive directly at the SU Center in Santiago.
Note: At least three semesters of college-level Spanish are required for application to the program.
