Argentina, the largest Spanish-speaking country in the world, known locally as "The Land of the Six Continents" for its geographic and climatic diversity, has a long and fascinating history and is a major economic and political power in South America.

The capital city, Buenos Aires, famous for its 47 historically and culturally distinctive neighborhoods such as La Boca and La Recoleta, is arguably the most cosmopolitan city on the continent, largely as a result of a wave of European immigration in the early 20th century. Almost half of the population of 36 million Argentines are said to live in Greater Buenos Aires and its province. Even so, the city is renowned for its parks and squares, which give it a sense of spaciousness. A major economic and political center, it is also a lively and cultured city with a European feel. Tango was, of course, invented here and is today a virtual obsession; that and a wide variety of other musical styles are at the very core of the local, "porteño" culture along with the "gaucho" heritage of freedom and independence. Yet, Buenos Aires is also home to innumerable art galleries, some 100 museums, countless historical and architectural monuments (including art deco), a cemetery that rivals Paris' Père Lachaise, over 90 theaters, classical music groups and orchestras, ballet, and opera (the Colón Theater is ranked among the top three in the world), while the ubiquitous sidewalk cafés offer unparalleled opportunities for people-watching.

Located in the residential district of Belgrano, Universidad Torcuato di Tella (UTDT) is a small (1,600 student) private, non-profit undergraduate- and graduate-level institution born of a highly respected foundation and research institute a decade ago. It is a demanding, rigorous, and specialized program, and the majority of its teachers are full-time teachers and researchers on the U.S. model, most of whom hold PhDs, often from Europe or the Americas. Operated on the Argentine educational model, it is especially strong in the social sciences, particularly economics, political science, and international relations, as well as a recently added, and very strong history program.  To access available courses, first select a departamento, then select a carrera de grado, and finally the plan de estudios within your selection.
