Traditional | Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic
Study Abroad Coordinator: Colleen Boyle (email@example.com)
Santo Domingo, capital of the Dominican Republic, is located on the southern coast of the island. It has a population of two million and is considered to be the main economic and political center of the country. The city, often called the "First City of the New World," is steeped in historical significance. There are numerous plazas and churches throughout the colonial district, which give a distinct flavor to the city. The city is divided by a river, the Rio Ozama, and is close to many beaches.
The CIEE Study Center, established in 1998, gives students the opportunity to enroll in classes at El Bono and INTEC. In addition, FLACSO offers several special courses for CIEE students, focused upon cultural, literary, artistic, political, and social aspects of the Dominican Republic and the Caribbean as a whole. This arrangement permits students to combine the specialized, more personalized "think tank" atmosphere of FLACSO with courses offered through INTEC and El Bono.
The program is suitable for advanced undergraduate students with strong language skills and a background in the social sciences or Latin American studies.
