The Department of Spanish and Portuguese offers an advanced language study abroad program in Buenos Aires, Argentina.  Classes are taught at the Universidad Torcuato Di Tella (UTDT) by local faculty as well as by the Dartmouth faculty member. 

Buenos Aires is one of the most vibrant, intellectual, and artistic capitals of the Americas. A major cosmopolitan city, Buenos Aires boasts 180 theater halls (more than any city in the world) and an outstanding number of museums, cinemas, and bookstores. Home to such diverse figures as Jorge Luis Borges, Carlos Gardel, Che Guevara, Eva Perón, and soccer stars like Maradona and Messi, Buenos Aires hosts over 30,000 international students every year.

The Buenos Aires offering of our popular Spanish language study abroad program will combine classroom experience at the Universidad Torcuato Di Tella with extensive fieldwork through excursions and programmed events. The program offers intensive courses in language (with emphasis on grammar and conversation), Argentine civilization, and Spanish American literature. Through direct contact with urban and rural Argentineans, the students become sensitive to another culture and more conscious of the realities of contemporary Latin America.

Tuition and Fees

The fees charged by the College for a Dartmouth-sponsored off-campus term of study include regular tuition charges for a term at Dartmouth, service fees, as well as the specific costs established for each off-campus study locale. In many programs, the room and board costs tend to be higher than for a term in Hanover. You can view a budget sheet for each program by clicking on the appropriate term. The cost of transportation to and from the site is the responsibility of the student.

Financial Aid

In order that all qualified Dartmouth undergraduate students may have the opportunity to take part in off-campus programs, the College endeavors to adjust its normal financial aid awards for students already receiving aid. Tuition and expected family contribution for Dartmouth's off-campus programs are the same as for an on-campus term.

All costs, including airfare and spending money, are considered when determining the cost of an off-campus program. Any costs in excess of a typical term in Hanover are met with additional Dartmouth Scholarship Funds.  Loan assistance is offered to replace the employment that would normally be included in an on-campus term.

Students are responsible for purchasing their own plane ticket and, in many cases, meals. Often this means that part of the expected family contribution is used towards these costs rather than for tuition. For help sorting out who pays what and how, a visit to the Financial Aid Office is often advisable.
