Catalog Code: ILMES3318
The Courses with Peruvian Students program is designed for high advanced Spanish students who would like to take a variety of courses with Peruvian students taught in Spanish. This university offers over 1800 courses per semester in many fields including Arts and Humanities, History, Linguistics, Literature, Political Science, Business Administration, Education, Law, and many others. In addition, the PUCP may offer a few courses in English each semester depending on interest. All classes are taken at the Pontifical Catholic University of Peru with Peruvian and international students.
In addition to their academic courses, students will have the opportunity to spend 5-10 hours per week at a host organization, increasing their language proficiency and gaining valuable international experience. Language proficiency for the placement will be determined by a phone interview before acceptance to the program. Placements are arranged prior to arrival in the host country and language requirements vary. Visit the ISA Service-Learning website for more information on placement opportunities.
Placements are coordinated by ISA and have no affiliation with the university. Students will develop a Portfolio throughout the program, documenting their projects, hours and program activities. Participants can earn 1-6 credits based on the number of contact hours accrued at the host organization and successful completion of the Portfolio. Visit the Academic Credit page on the ISA Service-Learning website for more information.
