The Site
Buenos Aires is the capital of Argentina and its largest city.  It is located in the southern shore of the Rio de la Plata, 150 miles from the Atlantic Ocean. It is one of the world's largest cities and one of its most important ports.  Buenos Aires is the center of Argentina's government, commerce, business, politics, and culture. Its wealth and influence dominate the life of the rest of the nation and extend well beyond the nation's borders. About a third of Argentina's people live in the Buenos Aires metropolitan area, which has a population of over 13 million.

The Program
The CAPA Buenos Aires Study Center is hosted at Universidad Austral, a small, private university in the heart of Buenos Aires between San Telmo and Puerto Madero. The campus has a library, computer labs, and a cafeteria. For more program details visit the CAPA website. This is a six-week summer program.

Students will live with host families throughout the city. A transportation pass for the metro and buses will be included. Students will have access to a variety of student events, and the CAPA staff will be available 24/7 along the way. This program is ideal for those students who want to experience the culture of Buenos Aires firsthand.

CAPA has an office on-site at the university, and the CAPA Resident Director is responsible for all student services during the program. All CAPA students are also considered to be Austral students, and they will have access to the school's resources.

Courses
The summer program is designed specifically for CAPA students. Students enroll in two courses for a total of six credits.  Students have the opportunity to study Spanish while taking courses in art history, economics, history, international relations, literature, politics, and sociology, all of which are taught in English. The six-week semester program is open to students of all language abilities. For further details visit the CAPA website.

Housing and Meals
Students live within commuting distance of the CAPA Buenos Aires Center in a homestay. Homestays include daily breakfast and dinner, and each student will have his or her own room.
