Program Description:

Santiago, DR
CIEE Liberal Arts Program in Santiago, Dominican Republic
Improve your Spanish while gaining insight into the realities of life in the developing world of the Dominican Republic. In Santiago, you’ll immerse yourself in local culture, both on and off campus, through a combination of intensive coursework, homestays, volunteer opportunities, and a variety of cultural activities and excursions. In class you’ll study the language, politics, regional literature, and art. During rural work retreats, you’ll become part of life in the Dominican Republic – and the Dominican Republic will become part of you.

Study abroad in Santiago and you will:

  • Contrast the daily realities of the Dominicans and Haitian who share the campus and the city
  • Learn outside the classroom on class trips ranging from visits to local Santería altars to the Free Trade Zone; trips to sites of ecological and historical-cultural importance; and weekend excursions to the Samaná Peninsula and mountains of Constanza
