Program Description:
Banner for Uruguay

Nearly half of Uruguay's three million inhabitants call Montevideo home. Located on Uruguay's southern coastline and separated from its more famous western neighbor in Argentina by the estuary of the world's widest river, the Rio de la Plata, Montevideo is a different world from Buenos Aires.

While it, too, is a cosmopolitan city, also of primarily Spanish and Italian heritage, there is also a significant African influence. Smaller, calmer, and less expensive than Buenos Aires, Montevideo nonetheless boasts the usual cultural and entertainment facilities of a major city: including historical monuments, museums, theaters, cinemas, a varied and fascinating, if somewhat under-maintained architecture, the famous Avenida 18 de Julio, as well as stunning beaches, and a unique and lively nightlife. With very few American students, this capital city is an ideal location for immersion into a strong and proud culture and language.

ORT is a private, non-profit university with a strong focus in science, technology, business and design, with a tradition of innovation, entrepreneurship and international collaboration. It has about 8,500 students across four Schools (Management & Social Sciences, Architecture, Communication & Design, Engineering) and one Institute (Education), offering undergraduate, graduate and technical degrees. The Schools are located in two campuses, in the downtown area and in Pocitos, a charming section of the city. It was founded in 1943 by members of the Jewish community in Uruguay, and it is a member of World ORT, a Jewish educational organization originated in Saint Petersburg, Russia in 1880. ORT´s mission is to provide higher education of excellence in disciplines relevant to the country´s development, training professionals prepared for the challenges of the national and international realities. 

ORT is also where the School in Uruguay hosts its Architectural Studies Track.  Through this track, students can take advantage of ORT's internationally recognized architecture program and its impressive facilities, including lab and workshop space, a specialized library, and the university's Innovation an Entrepreneurship Center.  Furthermore, the architecture program at ORT is built on a strong practical foundation, with some courses taking place on actual building sites and with students working on real-world projects.  Students in the track will have further opportunities to apply their academic coursework in a real-world context through a credited academic internship.
