Latin American studies program (pel)

General

Program Description

The PEL is an initiative of the Department of International Relations and Academic Cooperation of our University designed to address the Latin American reality from different disciplines.

This program aims to provide the knowledge of one's own problems of our region, beyond the issues of Argentina, opening the eyes of those strokes of culture, history, economics, the arts and politics that are fundamental parts of our identity .

Within the varied academic offerings proposed by the Faculties of the UCA, you'll find the PEL a unique opportunity to enjoy an academic experience that will bring you to specific topics that you will not find anywhere else in the world. Designed for international students, these courses are also open extension- like all students of our University. While they receive during Orientation Week information directly from teachers in charge of each course, we give them the ability to access the Content Guide Minimum where you will find the list of all the materials that make up the PEL with a brief description of each uca.

The courses offered are similar workload and are convertible to credits within the framework of academic exchange. The academic offerings of the program has courses taught in Spanish and / or English.

To pass PEL courses you must meet the same requirements as for any material of the UCA:

  • Attend at least 75% of classes.
  • Approve midterms and other assessments to establish the teacher in each case.
  • Passing the exam or final work which may be oral or written, as determined by each teacher.
