Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile (Media and Journalism)

On this program, UNC School of Media and Journalism (MEJO) students directly enroll at the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile (UC) for a semester or academic year for an opportunity to fully integrate into the academic, social, and cultural life in Santiago. You may apply as an exchange student or as a non-exchange student. No matter your classification, you will take courses alongside degree-seeking UC students and participate in all aspects of student life. 

Location

La Universidad Católica was originally founded in 1888. La UC-Chile is located on four campuses in Santiago, the bustling capital city of Chile. The city's population is around 5 million, while approximately 17,000 students attend UC-Chile.   Students on this program attend classes in the School of Journalism at Casa Central, located on the campus of Alameda 340.
 

Courses & Credits

The language prerequisite is 5 semesters, completed by the start of the program.

Students can enroll in courses at Universidad Católica from the School of Journalism catalog.

NOTE: If you are not taking Spanish at UNC but believe you have the equivalency required, please take the free UNC online language placement test. Send your name, PID, and email to Abel Muñoz-Hermoso (amunoz@email.unc.edu). He will add you to Sakai where the test is set. You will then take the test at any time and will have 40 minutes in which to complete the test. Once you have completed the assessment test, send him the link to the Study Abroad language assessment form and he will complete that based on your results.

  • You must submit the Credit Request Form to earn any credit for your time abroad.
