Tufts in Chile

Academic Program
Students in the program take regular courses at the University of Chile, choosing from the hundreds of courses offered at its various faculties. Normally, foreign students take four courses a semester, chosen in consultation with the resident director. A Spanish language course equivalent to Spanish 121 is required, except for native speakers and those students who have already completed Spanish 121. Interested students can be placed in internships and community service positions. Evaluation at the University of Chile is similar to that at Tufts, including papers and exams.
