SIT Study Abroad Argentina: Transnationalism and Comparative Development in South America

NOTE: SIT will make every effort to maintain its programs as described. To respond to emergent situations, like COVID-19, SIT may have to modify programs.

Examine the social and economic development strategies of Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay, and Uruguay.

WHY STUDY TRANSNATIONALISM IN ARGENTINA?


While the countries of the Southern Common Market (MERCOSUR) share some economic and social realities, they are more disparate than alike. Argentina and Brazil both have large economies with changing social policies within politically polarized societies. Paraguay and Uruguay are smaller economies with different socio-economic models and development and social policies. You’ll spend time in all four countries to understand their similarities, differences, and transnational processes.

Begin the program in Buenos Aires, attending lectures at IDES (Instituto de Desarrollo Económico y Social), and interacting with politicians, economists, and grassroots community leaders. Then excursions to Brazil, Paraguay, and Uruguay, will expand your knowledge of the region’s history, including memories of human rights violations; political and economic changes; the role of grassroots movements; and the economic, cultural, and social aspects of regional integration.

Develop Spanish language skills related to social sciences and development through classroom learning, cultural immersion, homestays, and excursions. Finally, customize the program by choosing an internship with a nonprofit or an independent research project in Argentina, Paraguay or Uruguay.

Please visit the SIT Study Abroad website for details on the program highlights and details of coursework, educational excursions, and housing.
