Program Overview:
Students will be immersed in an experience that links language study with learning about Uruguayan society, preparing students to meet the Hispanic Studies Program learning outcomes.

Additionally, the experience of a home-stay and structured experiential learning opportunities will allow students to become familiar with Uruguayan contemporary social struggles as well as with its progressive agenda in terms of gender-related legislation. Finally, by participating in excursions outside the capital students will learn of Uruguay's unique historical past and present.
