SIT Study Abroad Chile: Comparative Education and Social Change

Study educational policies and pedagogies in Chile and Argentina and explore the relationship between education, society, and diversity in both countries.

WHY STUDY EDUCATION IN CHILE?

With its large indigenous and immigrant population and strong contrasts between urban and rural areas, Chile offers the opportunity to study a variety of educational models. You will spend time in diverse schools throughout the country—including public, private, voucher, underprivileged, coed, bilingual and intercultural institutions—to understand forces that affect educational policies and ideologies. Excursions to different regions of the country will deepen your understanding of the complex cultural and socioeconomic realities that impact education systems.

You will also spend two weeks in Argentina, which will provide the opportunity to compare educational systems. You will see how teachers and students in Argentina and Chile are trying to make education available to vulnerable populations, including immigrants and students with disabilities.

You will also develop the formal and informal Spanish language skills to discuss and research education issues and policy through classroom learning, cultural immersion, homestays, and excursions.

Please visit the SIT Study Abroad website for details on the program highlights and details of coursework, educational excursions, and housing.
