Study Abroad in Buenos Aires
Latin American Societies and Cultures Program

Why Buenos Aires?
Poised between the sweeping Río de la Plata and the legendary pampas, Buenos Aires and its metro area is home to one-third of Argentina's population of 38 million people, making it a hub of public debate, political action, and reform movements.

Study abroad in Buenos Aires and explore the capital city's wide avenues, sprawling parks, and elegant 19th century Parisian-style architecture. Or get another view of the city on its narrow, crowded side streets, where graffiti and political posters show the grit of a modern metropolis and where soulful strains of tango still ring through the air.
