NAU in Chile

Valparaíso, Chile Location Link



santiNo word better describes Latin American realities than "transformation," as the region struggles with questions of cultural identity, globalization, urbanization and environmental degradation. The Spanish language and culture pervasive in the United States is influenced to a large extent by Latin American cultures and societies. Chile in particular offers fascinating and incredibly diverse landscapes, cultures and traditions in a region known for its hospitality and friendliness.

This programs aims to complement the Spanish courses currently offered by the Modern Languages Department, as well as to provide a general multicultural education experience for students. Through this program, students will receive academic instruction in one of Chile's most reputable institutions of higher education. Cross-cultural activities and excursions will allow students to engage with the local culture, learn about Chilean history, and further hone their language skills.

This program is led by NAU Instructor Gina Santi.
