Studying in Latin America

latin american studies

Students in the Latin American Studies minor are encouraged to participate in a study‐abroad program in Latin America for a summer, a semester, or a year. Boston College sponsors university‐based programs in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, and Ecuador, and maintains affiliations with external programs in Argentina, Brazil, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Mexico, Nicaragua, and Panama. The Latin American Studies department and Office of International Programs can assist students with arrangements in other countries. With prior approval from the Director of Latin American Studies, two Latin America‐focused courses taken abroad may be counted toward the minor. Three courses can be counted if the period of study abroad is a full academic year.

For information on service-based, short-term immersion experiences in Belize, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Mexico, and Nicaragua, visit the Campus Ministry website.

See the Office of International Programs website for further information on semester and summer program offerings in Latin America.
