Swarthmore en Buenos Aires

The Swarthmore Program in Buenos Aires (SWBA) aims at facilitating a strongly personalized academic and living experience in one of the largest and most cosmopolitan Latin American cities. Its goals underline Spanish language acquisition and improvement, in-depth exposure to historic and contemporary Buenos Aires, and academic training tailored to the specific interests of the student.


It is an ambitious program that will serve students interested in taking their Spanish to an advanced level of fluency, as well as those attracted by the idea of living in a Latin-American metropolis in a different, high-quality academic environment.


Buenos Aires is the door to a country that is rich in its cultural and geographical diversity, and we wish the academic experience of the Program becomes, for our students, an unforgettable life experience. The general goal is to offer an excellent foreign study experience to a diverse group of students, disciplines and departments.
