Society, Politics & Culture - University of el Salvador

The Society, Politics & Culture program at the University of el Salvador is an excellent program for students seeking to challenge their Spanish proficiency while pursuing studies in the areas of art, culture, political science, history, international studies, sociology, theatre, film and more.

This program offers a coordinated interdisciplinary study of Argentina and the Southern Cone region for students with an intermediate knowledge of the Spanish language (2 semesters/3 quarters of college-level Spanish or the equivalent).

Students begin this program with a mandatory 3-week intensive Spanish language course. For the semester portion of the program, students will select three electives instructed in Spanish to complement the mandatory Contemporary Latin American Language and Culture course.

The University of el Salvador requests that students include enrollment documents completed by hand and a 250-word letter of intent written in Spanish in addition to the standard ISA materials. These documents will be requested following your acceptance into the program.

Please note that students who complete the Society, Politics & Culture program will be eligible to participate in the Liberal Arts, Language & Culture program at the University of el Salvador during the following semester for a discounted price.

If a student has completed 4+ semesters/6+ quarters of college-level Spanish or more, it is strongly suggested that the student pursue a different ISA program. This is because the Society, Politics & Culture program is designed with Intermediate to High Intermediate students in mind (2-3 semesters/3-5 quarters), and all courses available during the semester will cater to the High Intermediate Spanish language level.

*Please be aware that some courses with Argentine students are offered only during specific semesters, and often change due to course schedule conflicts, enrollment, etc. While ISA makes every effort to maintain a current course list on the ISA website, course enrollment cannot be guaranteed until students arrive onsite.
