About The Program
Rising from past military dictatorships, Argentina and Chile are models in social, political, and cultural reinvention. Observe, experience, and compare both countries as you travel from Buenos Aires to Santiago. Each location is rich in contrasts with diverse cultures and landscapes. You also have a chance to interact with local political and human rights organizations. Cultural tours and activities introduce unique flavors, sights, and history. Enjoy the taste of grilled asados, the spirited rivalry of fútbol, and the rhythmic footwork of the tango. During a weeklong break, discover South America's breathtaking natural environments like mountain deserts in Patagonia, ice glaciers, or tropical beaches.
Where you'll study

In addition, UTDT is an advocate of cultural exchange and hosts a variety of social events for international students. It also offers a buddy system that will help you meet more Argentine students. If you’re up for it, you can even join an intramural sports team, which the International Programs Office highly recommends. The surrounding area is in Belgrano, an attractive residential neighborhood with lavishly designed embassies, lush parks and a busy shopping area famous for Argentinian fashion brands. Steps from campus are plenty of parks for study breaks as well as shops and malls.
