Buenos Aires is the capital of Argentina situated on the shore of the Río de la Plata, 150 miles (240 km) from the Atlantic Ocean. Buenos Aires is one of Latin America’s most important ports and largest cities, as well as the national center of Argentina’s economy, politics, arts and technology.
Buenos Aires locals are referred to as porteños (“people of the port”) because the city’s inhabitants historically arrived by boat from Europe. This European culture can be noticed today in Buenos Aires’ architecture and way of life. Buenos Aires is a city of distinctive neighbourhoods, among them La Boca, Palermo, Recoleta and many more, that provide a sense of community where Porteños can enjoy politics, football (soccer), and the city’s cultural offerings.
At night, Buenos Aires’ boites (nightclubs) play the tango, the emotional dance that originated in the lower-class areas of the city and that is said to reflect the soul of the porteño.
Created in 1974 by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, this unique Latin American academic center is devoted to educating experts of different social science branches.

Analogic Abroad has designed a very specific program for students who are interested in combining their study abroad experience with two different destinations, comparing the knowledge they gain in two different cultures to broaden their academic exchange perspectives.
In addition to this double-site study program, students will participate in many unique experimental activities. hey will get a hands-on experience by taking part in panel discussions with current and former politicians and important state figures, visiting various non-profit organizations dedicated to human rights, political transformation and economic development of both countries, and leading a small research initiative in the field of comparative politics and developmental studies.
The program is 16 weeks long, out of which students stay 8 weeks in both destinations (Santiago, Chile and Buenos Aires, Argentina). All participants will also get a chance to take part in two investigative excursions led by faculty members to help the students appreciate other parts of the region that are closely related to the topics discussed in classes.
The program is led in close collaboration with Universidad Diego Portales (Santiago,Chile) and FLACSO Argentina (Facultad Latinoamericana de Ciencias Sociales – Buenos Aires, Argentina). All students will be provided with services that will enable them to adapt fast in the two different cultural and academic environments.
