CEA Buenos Aires Global Health
Since 1997, CEA has maintained one simple philosophy: To provide high-quality international academic programs and services. For you, that means support through each step of your study abroad experience, from the moment you apply to the day you return home again. Along the way, you’ll learn to adapt and communicate across cultures. You’ll earn credits toward graduation while gaining skills that enhance your employability. And you’ll discover more about yourself than you ever thought possible.
LocationsThe CEA Buenos Aires Center offers an interdisciplinary liberal arts and social sciences education in a cosmopolitan capital city. The city of Buenos Aires provides a stimulating environment in which to study political, cultural, and business trends in Latin America. The Global Health program is designed to enhance awareness of health issues in Argentina and the U.S., build cultural competence and sensitivity through interactions with local public health organizations, and facilitate understanding of the challenges of working in resource-poor areas. Learn how to become an objective observer of various cultural healing practices unique to Argentina and Latin America in the Comparative Healing Systems course, and explore the complex challenges facing human health today—like water security, food security, and climate change—in the Global Environmental Health course.
