Auburn University Buenos Aires Internship Program

Night falls on Buenos Aires, and as you email home with this week’s update, you share your experiences in this beautiful, historic city: your visits to the Evita and MALBA Art Museums; the cobblestone, café-lined streets that took you back in time; and the soccer match where you cheered like a native porteño with your new classmates. You pass along greetings from your host family, and close by reaffirming that you chose your perfect study abroad program. The city has been a delight to explore, and the neighborhood La Boca, known for the vibrantly colored houses and pedestrian street the Cainito, where tango artists perform in the street, has become one of your favorite areas. This energetic port city has long been considered the gateway to Argentina, welcoming immigrants from all over Europe and Latin America. That’s why it is no longer surprising for you to see a German church sitting next to an Italian restaurant on a street named after a Spanish saint. Through your coursework at Austral and the varied MyEducation events each week, the stories of Buenos Aires are coming together to create a mosaic of culture, spirit, and connectedness, one that you can now place yourself in as well. This program is offered through CAPA International Education.
