This summer the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa is offering an exciting Honors study abroad program at the Universidad Nacional de Cuyo in Mendoza, Argentina. This program is open to all current university level students (no need to apply to UHM to participate!) and offers the opportunity to earn up to 9 credits–6 in Spanish language and 3 in Honors through the course HON 330 Developing Intercultural Competence through Research.
This program runs from May 25 to July 3 and prices begin at $4,600, including a single room with an Argentinian host family and several excursions, such as an overnight trip to the Uspallata valley where we will see the tallest mountain outside of Asia, Aconcagua!
The Honors course is optional, but if you choose to take it be sure to talk with your Honors advisor to verify that you would be able to earn credit for it within your program. The faculty Resident Director of this program, who will be on-site throughout the summer, is happy to talk with you to work this out! We also have an opportunity for student work completed in this program to be published in our academic journal Mānoa Horizons.
Deadline to apply in February 18th! Please see our attached flyer for more information and check out the program website here: http://www.studyabroad.hawaii.edu/programs/summer/mendoza-argentina/
For any questions, planning, or academic approval (such as discussing requirements for the transfer of Honors credit back to your university Honors program) please contact faculty Resident Director, Dr Jayme Scally (email@example.com).
