Universidad Torcuato Di Tella

 
The Study Abroad Office is pleased to offer you the opportunity to study at a very prestigious university in Argentina: Universidad Torcuato Di Tella (UTDT). This Exchange and Non-Exchange program provides students the opportunity to attend the UTDT in Buenos Aires for a spring or fall semester or year-long.  All exchange students are considered non-degree or visiting students, but will be enrolled full time with access to all services, and most academic programs and courses. UTDT is a private non-profit institution founded in 1991, with the mission of contributing to academic life and higher education in Argentina through research and teaching in the arts and sciences.

Location

Buenos Aires is a culturally and socially vibrant city. It is a place to be young: the city never stops. It is modern and traditional, exciting, frenetic, and fun. Buenos Aires is an unending labyrinth of elegant residential neighborhoods, beautiful parks and plazas, and the Río de la Plata. Tango, art and antiques are offered in open air and markets along the streets, where you will also find bookstores, cafés, restaurants, and theaters. The porteños, as people who live in Buenos Aires are called, love to go out to eat, dance, see a movie or hear a concert. Buenos Aires has a "café culture" that rivals that of many European cities, you are welcome to stay as long as you want reading, chatting, working, or hanging out with friends. 

Courses & Credits

The language prerequisite is 5 semesters, completed by the start of the program. All undergraduate courses are taught in Spanish.

Once you have been accepted as an Exchange Student by UTDT, the International Program Office will send you the final course offer via email. Students can choose their courses from the Departments of Economics, History, International Studies, Business, and Political Science. The Universidad Torcuato Di Tella offers an intensive Argentine culture and language course to all students who participate in the Exchange Program. This course is designed for intermediate to advanced level Spanish speakers who would like to refine their reading, listening, and speaking skills so they achieve a full and active insertion in Argentine academia and life. Through a wide range of communicative and cultural activities, this course will help further develop fluency and linguistic sophistication. It includes: presentation of vocabulary and syntax of the Río de la Plata region; cultural, historical and practical information about Buenos Aires and other regions in Argentina; analysis of major newspapers and current events; introduction to Argentine music and cinema, among other topics.



Courses in this program are Transfer Credit.
