Study abroad in Santiago, Chile

Welcome to SU Santiago!

With Latin America as your study destination, you will visit countries that respresent much more than the origins of Western culture; they embody the diverse forms that this culture can adopt when it comes in contact with indigenous elements, many of which are still present today. Chile - a country that has recently attained one of the highest levels of economic and human development in Latin America - will be your base for exploration during this intellectual and academic journey. Note: At least three semesters of college-level Spanish are required for application to the program.
