The university's mission statement emphasizes the students active participation in the learning process; every student is expected to play the role of protagonist in his/her own academic development. Program opportunities include Latin American Studies & Internship, Language and Culture, Art & Design semester programs, and Language & Culture summer.
Students will live with a local host family to maximize their immersion and language learning potential.
