Special Programs for Foreign Universities

Along with Universidad Alberto Hurtado’s Schools and Departments, we coordinate special programs for foreign universities and institutions. These programs are usually formed by students of the same institution or university, which come for a specific period of time (which in general does not match the regular semester), with a specific purpose (study Spanish, develop a learning area, get to know the Chilean culture, etc.) and can be carried out in Spanish or English. Some of the programs that we have developed during the past few years are:

  • FORDHAM UNIVERSITY “GLOBAL BUSINESS HONORS PROGRAM”
  • BOSTON COLLEGE “THROUGH THE EYES OF SERVICE: SOCIAL JUSTICE IN CHILE”
  • UNIVERSIDAD CATÓLICA DE URUGUAY “MISIONES ACADÉMICAS FACULTAD DE CIENCIAS EMPRESARIALES”
  • UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA “HUMAN RIGHTS AND CULTURAL MEMORY”
  • SCHOOL FOR INTERNATIONAL TRAINING “COMPARATIVE EDUCATION AND SOCIAL CHANGE”
  • LIPSCOMB UNIVERSITY SPANISH AND THEOLOGY COURSES
