Inside the Program
Designed for students who are interested in rapidly improving their Spanish, this program is also ideal for students interested in exploring international justice and human rights. The human rights and criminal justice electives are taught in English. Participants with very little Spanish-speaking experience planning to enroll in the fall program are encouraged to attend a summer session to help build language proficiency. Courses make extensive use of the city and its resources through academic excursions, and you will live with a local family.
In summer 2014, University of Oregon instructor Carlos Aguirre and study abroad program coordinator Luis Ruiz will teach one course in Rosario, Argentina, alongside local Argentinian faculty. Enroll in Soccer, Culture and Politics in Latin America, and use soccer (and the 2014 World Cup in Brazil) as a cultural and sociological window to experience and understand the complexities of Latin American societies.

Credit Explanation / Academic Details
All students are required to enroll in 2 Spanish language courses and may also elect to enroll in the human rights and criminal justice electives, which are taught in English. All courses offered in Rosario are recognized and approved for academic credit by various AHA partner institutions. Actual credit awarded is determined by the relevant department at your university in consultation with the study abroad office. Check with your study abroad advisor for more information.
Courses are taught by local instructors, experienced in teaching U.S. students. The programs are designed for first through fourth level Spanish language students with academic interests in human rights and criminal justice. You will attend classes with students from around the U.S. with varying levels of Spanish language experience. Courses take place from Monday-Friday and include extensive academic excursions. Students will meet local students at the Universidad Nacional de Rosario to take part in lively debate and dialogue on current events and issues.
Living with an Argentine host family provides students with the opportunity to learn about Argentine ways of life, further language proficiency and discover rich cultural traditions in Rosario. Many students cherish their homestay experience as one of the most rewarding aspects of studying abroad, and often times remain lifelong friends with their host family well after returning home. Host families are carefully screened and provide quality, comfortable accommodations in the downtown area offering you the opportunity to improve your Spanish language and skills by participating in family, community, cultural and recreational activities. Placements include families with children as well as single women and couples with older children who no longer live at home. Each student will have his or her own room. Breakfast and dinner will be provided by the homestay, and during the week lunch will be served at a restaurant close to the university.
