Student Profile - Ellie Bowen
"The program is relatively small, so you get a lot more individualized attention from professors, especially in comparison to normal Stanford classes. The teaching team for the Santiago program is extremely dedicated to student learning, and are always willing to meet with you to discuss class material, offer book recommendations, or help you practice Spanish."
Student Profile - Evani Radiya-Dixit
"I choose Santiago for many reasons. I wanted to live with a host family and practice my Spanish. I knew little of Latin American history and was excited to learn more about Chilean politics."
On Campus Gateway Course: ILAC 131, "Introduction to Latin America: Cultural Perspectives"
Offered during Winter quarter as part of the "Gateways to the World" program, the seminar course above is recommended to help you prepare for your time abroad. Additional consideration during the application process for this program will be given to students taking this course.
The Santiago program is now open during Autumn, Spring and Summer quarters! This schedule will give students more of a chance to interact with local university students and faculty, and students who can't go abroad during the academic year will have the opportunity to go abroad during the summer.
