Founded just a few years after the death of the iconic Eva Perón (Evita), the University of el Salvador has over one hundred agreements with foreign institutions and hosts approximately 500 international students per year. This gives students the unique opportunity to not only study with local Argentines, but also students from across the globe in the charming Capital of Tango.

This program is designed specifically for students who are at the intermediate language level and looking to take courses in art, theater, politics, economy, and more. Each program begins with a 3-week intensive Spanish language course that allows students to ‘transition’ from English to Spanish and helps them become comfortable participating in a new language in a classroom setting.

- Latin-American Reality: Political Leadership
- Contemporary World Economy
- Cultural and Social Representations in Argentine History
