Offered: Fall Term
In cooperation with the University of Palermo in Buenos Aires, Knox offers a term of accredited academic study specially designed to emphasize the social sciences and language. The Buenos Aires program offers dramatic engagement with the history, politics, and economic justice issues of Argentina.
Distinctive features of the Program are its social justice outlook and its concentration on the southern cone of South America. Courses are taught in Spanish by University of Palermo professors. All students take a core course (which includes three educational trips), language, and pursue a combination of electives, mostly chosen from those offered by the program. Tutoring in Spanish is available to all participants. A series of talks are given by prominent figures on different aspects of Argentine culture.
All students live in the homes of Argentine families in Buenos Aires. This provides the opportunity to integrate into Argentine culture and learn historical context in an informed, personal setting. Students often take advantage of the three-day weekends to travel the country independently.
Non-Knox students are welcome to apply for admission to this program.
