Students in this program have the option of completing Spanish language coursework in combination with elective courses in English related to a variety of disciplines, including Argentine culture and society, economics, politics, and viticulture. Coursework is designed for visiting international students, though elective courses in English are also open to Argentine students at the Universidad de Congreso.
Advanced-level Spanish speakers have the option to complete coursework in Spanish alongside their Argentine peers. As the standard Argentine academic calendar begins earlier than the session for international students, taking courses with Argentines will require an additional fee and affect the program start date.
