Program Description:

Program Overview CIEE Santiago Chile

Chile is a long and narrow country, bordered on the east by the Andes and on the west by the Pacific. Santiago, 60 miles from the coast and the fifth largest city in South America, is home to over five million inhabitants. This capital city is both modern and dynamic, dominating the political, economic, and cultural life of the country. Its pleasant Mediterranean climate and proximity to the mountains permits many outdoor pursuits such as hiking, skiing, camping, river-rafting, and horseback riding.

Program Focus

The Liberal Arts study abroad program is designed for advanced Spanish language students from a wide variety of academic disciplines who are motivated to matriculate into regular university courses and are interested in learning more about Chilean life and society.
