This program is designed for students with beginning, intermediate or advanced Spanish proficiency that are interested in participating in a service-learning program in addition to their academic semester.
Ideal for students at all levels of Spanish language proficiency who want to take AACSB-accredited business courses in English or Spanish with Peruvians, this program also offers Spanish language courses at the beginning, intermediate and advanced Spanish levels.
Courses in English with locals include areas such as business, economics, finance, history, international relations, management, marketing, political science and social sciences.

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.
Service-Learning placements are coordinated by ISA and have no affiliation with the university. Students will complete a Service-Learning Portfolio throughout the program, which consists of reflective assignments, group discussions, and logs of hours.
Students can earn 3 credits by completing a minimum of 90 hours at a host organization and through successful completion of the Service-Learning Portfolio. Visit the Academic Credit page of the ISA Service-Learning website for more information.
