Chile

You are here

Study abroad in Chile and immerse yourself in the creative energy of a country emerging as an economic power with modern social programs and ties to both Europe and Asia.

You might practice Spanish at a market, meet up with local and international friends, and spend time with your host family all in an average day while studying abroad in Chile. Mix that with personal travel—imagine visiting Torres del Paine National Park or Peru !—and you’re ready for the Latin American adventure of a lifetime.

A strong and growing economy, a leader in continental rankings, and an incredible place to study abroad, Chile is calling your name.

On one of our five Chile study abroad programs, you’ll learn not only in class or at your internship, but also when Course-related excursion and fields trips provide context to what you’re learning in the classroom, and allow you to explore Chilean life outside of your host city.

Santiago

A booming industrial and financial center, Santiago is Chile’s capital and largest city.

A Weekend in Chiloé

by Thea

After a 3:45 AM departure Friday morning, we emerged bleary-eyed from the airport in Puerto Montt. Outside the air was brisk and our director Maricarmen donned a full-length parka; the climate in the Lake District is vastly different from that of Santiago. We got on a bus and drove to board a ferry. The trip out to the island of Chiloé was picturesque, with apparently unusually clear skies. After arriving on the island, we stopped on the side of the road at a small group of tents.
