Chile

The CSB/SJU program in Chile is in the sea-side town of Viña del Mar, 70 miles west of Chile's capital, Santiago. Viña (as it is more commonly known) has a population of approximately 285,000 and is surrounded by picturesque beaches, lakes, and mountains. Viña makes an excellent location for students wishing to advance their Spanish language skills while, at the same time, integrating into the rich and diverse culture through volunteer opportunities, university clubs and organizations, and host family experiences. Students study at the Universidad Adolfo Ibáñez, a small private university beautifully situated with views of the bay. Courses are offered in a wide variety of subjects such as Latin American Art and Culture, Chilean History, International Relations, and Spanish Grammar. The faculty consists of a CSB/SJU professor who accompanies the group and distinguished professors from the Universidad Adolfo Ibáñez.
