Virtual Internship in Argentina
Spring Study Abroad Alternatives
Providing unique learning experiences for North American university students since 1969
Spanish Studies Abroad has a new way to improve your Spanish as well as to get students ready for the job market. The virtual internship program is a for-credit course, which offers both a Spanish language component and the chance to work with an organization in Argentina as a virtual intern.
Students will take one hour per week of a “Spanish for the Workplace” course taught by faculty in Argentina. In addition, students will work for either an NGO or a division of a university as an intern. Many of the roles include creating English language content.
Students will receive an official transcript from the Universidad Nacional de Córdoba for 3 US academic credits. Spanish Studies Abroad will provide a program director to assist you. The fee for this course is $800.
