Mente Argentina Partnership Program

Faculty at many colleges and universities around the globe choose to design their own study abroad programs in Argentina for their students in partnership with Mente Argentina. Mente Argentina has developed its Partnership Program in order that University-level faculty and other educational professionals may conveniently offer customized faculty-led and group integrated learning experiences that allow students to explore specific, tailor made educational content while discovering a new culture and city.

Custom faculty-lead study abroad programs should be multi-faceted experiences that not only deepen students’ understanding of their globally-oriented curriculum, but combine group activities, organized excursions, and cultural encounters in a way that makes learning in a foreign context a comprehensive and life changing experience. While integrating into a dynamic international setting, students should do more than simply study the course topic. Whether they’re sharing conversation over a traditional mate with their Argentine host family or taking in the beauty of tango at a local performance, the fusion of their academics and these supplemental activities are what make our specialized programs so unforgettable and unique.
