The six week study abroad session is suitable for students planning to enter the political science professions and who anticipate using Spanish in their careers, such as working in populations with a high percentage of Spanish-speaking residents.
Participants will study two semesters worth of Spanish plus participate in a government/legal exposure seminar in Lima, followed by hands-on volunteer work in community building. A large portion of the Peruvian population lives in poverty, much of them concentrated in Lima’s metropolitan area. Students will be able to use their Spanish and participate firsthand in a local NGO.
Proficiency in Spanish is not required, however we encourage students below intermediate level to come a few weeks early.
2014 Program Information
Spanish & Political Science
Lima, Peru, Exact Dates TBD (six weeks) Max 30 students.
At this point we do not have the exact prices set, however we expect program cost (Spanish course, political science exposure seminar, volunteer placement, and administration fees) to be about $2,300 for the summer session.
We will be accepting applications in a few weeks.
Please direct any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will respond promptly. You may also phone us at 1 (347) 329 5506.
