Santiago Center

The program begins with four weeks of intensive Spanish language study at the CEDEI Institute in Cuenca, Ecuador (optional for students with four semesters of college Spanish, required for students with three semesters of college Spanish). A small, artsy city, Cuenca is known for its breathtaking mountain geography and the warmth of both its climate and people. After the Cuenca program, you'll spend the remainder of your semester in Santiago, with your choice of classes at local universities. The Santiago program begins with the required Signature Seminar, Contemporary Issues in Chile and Latin America. You will continue language study in Santiago, and enroll in at least one non-language class taught in Spanish at affiliated Chilean universities and/or classes at the SU Center. The SU Santiago program is designed to maximize immersion and language acquisition through homestays, interdisciplinary field study, and enrollment in regular semester classes taught in Spanish at the Universidad de Chile and Pontificia Universidad Catolica. SU Abroad students enroll in classes alongside Chilean students in a wide range of disciplines. Both undergraduate and graduate students have the option to participate in a professional internship.
