The program is sponsored with the Council on International Educational Exchange (CIEE), with classes at the Universidad de Chile and the Pontificia Universidad Catolica. Typical enrollment in this program involves 45 students from U.S. colleges and universities. This immersion experience includes homestay living in a Chilean home. You must be in at least your third full-time semester of college and have taken or be enrolled in sixth semester college-level Spanish with a B average.
