CASA Chile
The Consortium for Advanced Studies Abroad (CASA)

Santiago - San Cristobal CASA
The Consortium for Advanced Studies Abroad program in Santiago de Chile (CASA Chile) provides undergraduate students the unique opportunity for full immersion into Chilean culture and the Spanish language, while receiving transfer credit to apply towards their undergraduate degree, through living and taking courses with local students.


Santiago, Chile

Santiago, located in a valley between the Andes Mountains and the Pacific Ocean, has become fusion of colonial roots and modern development. Santiago’s steady economic growth has transformed it into a city with an interesting theater and restaurant scene, extensive shopping centers, an increasingly rising skyline (the Gran Torre de Santiago is the tallest building in Latin America), and South America’s most extensive subway system, the Metro de Santiago.
