JOIN US THIS SUMMER 2016
Situated on the equator between Colombia
and Peru, Ecuador may be the smallest
Andean nation, but it is packed with the
most startling contrasts of scenery. With
its astounding biodiversity, impressive
historical legacy, stunning colonial
architecture and diverse mix of people,
it is easy to see why this destination is a
paradise for travel lovers. Ecuador is also
the place of Marimba music, an Intangible
Cultural Heritage of Humanity from
UNESCO and vibrant emerging cultural
manifestations throughout the country,
thanks to its unique diversity of cultures
and peoples.
Spend your summer in Ecuador with us. During your five week stay at the Universidad de las Artes,
you will not only improve your Spanish but will also be able to take a course in Latin American
Contemporary Art Studies, intended to immerse students in contemporary Latin American
cultural affairs.
This multidisciplinary program is open to students from different careers with an intermediate level
of Spanish. Courses will be complemented with a number of fieldtrips throughout the coast, the
Andes and the Amazon, exploring this country’s beauty and diversity.
Courses included in
the program
1. SPANISH FOREIGN LANGUAGE
(48 HOURS)
2. LATIN AMERICAN CONTEMPORARY ART
STUDIES (48 HOURS)
The academic program teaches Spanish
as a foreign language for twelve hours per
week. Depending on the student’s level in
Spanish, classes will be divided into two
groups: intermediate (B1+) and advanced
(B2). The pedagogical material, developed
by the professors, is also cultural and will
supplement the rest of the program.
Students will receive twelve hours per
week of in-class instruction on Latin
American Contemporary Art. This course’s
primary aim is to analyze the content of
the main art manifestations pertaining to
Ecuador, especially in relation to the fields
of archeology, anthropology, sociology and
history of aesthetic ideas. This course will
have a special focus on Latin American
Cinema and Music.
