IFSA - STUDY IN BUENOS AIRES: PSYCHOLOGY AND NEUROSCIENCE
Geotag  Buenos Aires, Argentina

WHY STUDY IN BUENOS AIRES?
Home to countless cultural and sporting attractions, Buenos Aires is one of the most cosmopolitan societies in the world with a distinctly European air. Known for its sophistication and culture, the city offers unparalleled opportunities to enjoy theatre, music, films, sports, and museums. Although Buenos Aires is expansive, the city’s reliable and inexpensive local transportation make getting around a breeze.

ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Explore psychology, neuroscience, and more in Argentina, where mental health is viewed without stigma—and there are more psychologists per capita than in any other country.  

Get settled in a homestay or modern apartment and take classes in English at our IFSA Program Center in Buenos Aires. There’s plenty of time to explore a city known for its dynamic cultural scene, passion for tango, and fondness for late nights. We’ll make sure you learn the essential language skills you need to savor empanadas and morcipán along the way. Options for internships and volunteering help you gain insights and experience to guide your career path as you connect with fellow porteños, port city dwellers. 

Your semester includes unforgettable excursions and day trips. Explore amazing destinations like Colon, San Antonio de Areco, and Uribelarrea, and experience Argentine life and culture beyond Buenos Aires, with no added cost!
