A unique exploration of Globalization and Social Justice

This program gives you a unique take on summer study in Latin America. You will focus on Globalization and Social Justice to explore the country’s unique economic and social development over the past decades in relation to Latin America's as a whole. In addition, you’ll take a Spanish language course at your level (as determined by an online assessment).

Lectures and class time are supplemented and enriched by field excursions and visits to relevant institutions, towns and neighborhoods where Chile's development trajectory can be evidenced first hand. You’ll get to know the beautiful streets of Valparaiso, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and meet the people of this vibrant and artistic country.

  • Exciting and meaningful opportunities for community engagement, travel and excursions in Chile are arranged by the PUCV international office each term.

  • Homestay with local families is a highlight of the experience and helps you gain cultural and language immersion during your time in Chile. You live with families in Valparaiso or the nearby resort town of Vina del mar.

  • Chile has distinctive regions and micro-climates, from the Atacama desert in the north to Patagonia and the Bio Bio valley in the south - you can explore these areas through independent or partner university organized travel.
