Santiago's urban and natural framework, its mountainous terrain, and its proximity to Chile's central coastline are ideal for experiencing the nature and culture of the most southern country in the world. You'll have the opportunity to study Spanish language and Latin American and Anthropological Studies through a wide selection of academic courses, as well as personal interaction and immersion in the host culture.
PSU students can participate in the summer session II program, earning 3 to 5 semester credits (5 to 8 quarter credits). You may complement your language curriculum by taking courses in literature, art, cinema, photography, architecture and urbanism, history, sociology, political science, economics, women's studies, community development, anthropology, native cultures, astronomy, and technology. Take advantage of this study abroad opportunity, and learn how studying abroad can be a more meaningful and invigorating learning experience than at home—both inside and outside of the classroom—because you will be in a different place. You may be more curious and alert than you usually are; use this heightened energy to enhance your studies as well as your cultural and geographical explorations.
However, the academic courses are only a part of the value of a semester or year abroad. Participating in a homestay, cultural excursions, field trips, and the optional Latin America and its Cultures Field Study course to Northern and/or Southern Chile, as well as internships and volunteering, offer unparalleled opportunities for experiencing the local culture. Outings in and around Santiago constitute an integral part of this program.
