UGA en Buenos Aires (UGABA)

Our goals are to foster students´ communicative abilities in Spanish in authentic contexts, to deepen their understanding of Argentina and Latin America, and to improve their analytical and writing skills in Spanish. These abilities are professionally and personally valuable for those aspiring to work in Latin America or with Latino communities in the U.S. Students achieve these goals through Service Learning and Internship opportunities, home stay families, and a rigorous academic program.
