Consortium for Advanced Studies - Buenos Aires

Study abroad on a Harvard-affiliated program that enrolls you directly in regular university courses at the Universidad de Buenos Aires, the Universidad Torcuato di Tella, the Universidad de San Andrés, and the Universidad Nacional de las Artes along with regularly enrolled Argentine university students. The Consortium for Advanced Studies Abroad - Buenos Aires (CASA Buenos Aires)program, administered by Harvard, allows undergraduate students from Consortium schools (Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Harvard, Johns Hopkins, Northwestern, U. of Pennsylvania, and Vanderbilt) with advanced Spanish language proficiency to study alongside Chilean and international students, while living with an Argentine host family. At the CASA Buenos Aires Center, a Proseminar course is taught to support and enhance the students’ coursework at the Argentine universities. 

Through participating in the CASA Buenos Aires program, you will have the opportunity to improve your fluency in Spanish. The program is delivered in Spanish, therefore students must have taken at least five semesters of college level Spanish, or equivalent.
