Program Summary & Location
During late May and June, spend three weeks in the beautiful Mendoza region of Argentina learning about social, political, and economic issues facing Argentina today. Argentina is a unique country with a fascinating history and economy. The Mendoza region, which has a population of about 1.7 million people, is a renowned wine-growing area.
While exploring the city, you can expect to see many plazas, gardens, and green spaces. The area occupies a vast strip at the foot of the Andes mountains, which you will visit during the program.
The program explores the role that Argentina and the Mendoza region play in Latin America and the world economy while experiencing the culture and history of the area. Through lectures from local Argentine faculty at Universidad de Congreso, you will gain knowledge of the local economy, gender issues, social policy, politics & identity, and more. In addition, visits to local wineries, cooking classes, a tour of the Andes Mountains, and exploring a local market will give you insight into the culture and the people.
