Enjoy a semester-based in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Valparaíso, Chile, with its vibrant street art sub-culture and its architectural beauty. Learn the language, become involved in the local community and gain an understanding of the special Chilean culture, history and society.
This program, taught through Arcadia's academic partner, Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso (PUCV), focuses on Spanish language, Chilean culture and contemporary Latin American studies. If you have at least two years of Spanish language study at the university level, you can also take classes alongside Chilean students in academic departments within PUCV in various subjects.
Exciting and meaningful opportunities for community engagement, travel and excursions in Chile are arranged by the PUCV international office each term.
Homestay with local families is a highlight of the experience and helps you gain cultural and language immersion during your time in Chile. You live with families in Valparaiso or the nearby resort town of Vina del Mar.
Chile has distinctive regions and micro-climates, from the Atacama desert in the north to Patagonia and the Bio Bio valley in the south - you can explore these areas through independent or partner university organized travel.
Chile's Program Coordinator, Rodrigo González Salinas, will meet you on the ground! Based in Valparaíso, Rodrigo co-ordinates our student services support, academic guidance and co-curricular learning activities in Chile.
