Focus on Social Change

You’ll take Social Change in Latin America, taught in Spanish. This is the course that will change your life. You’ll examine industrial versus rural development, and learn where the worker fits into the equation. You’ll study the tension between democracy as a legal form and a hallowed emancipatory horizon. And you’ll learn about grassroots movements, like Malvinas Lucha por la Vida, an organization that not only fought against use of genetically modified seed, but actually won! In 2016, plans to construct a transgenic seed factory were abandoned thanks to three years of this group’s protests. Where was the factory going to be built? Córdoba.

Kick Off with Language Boot Camp

You’ll start your semester with a month of intensive Spanish (if you’re already at near-native fluency, you can take a direct-enroll elective during this time). This language boot camp progresses at lightning speed, covering a full year’s worth of material in just four weeks. Once that’s under your belt, you’ll take an official Argentinean Spanish Language Proficiency Examination. Your scores on this exam serve as your road map for the semester—you choose electives that are taught at a level of Spanish that’s appropriate for you.

Choices, Choices, Choices

CET is the only study abroad program in Córdoba that allows you to take courses at not one, but two local host universities. That means all of your electives will be taught in Spanish, and you’ll have plenty of options to choose from. Are you at a low-intermediate level? Are you a nursing student with close-to-native Spanish? You’ll find electives that are the perfect fit.
