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.

Founded in 1838 to be the sole university of the republic, Universidad de la República currently enrolls a total of more than 68,000 students on its numerous campuses throughout the country and employs some 6,000 faculty. 40,000 of these students attend classes in Montevideo, where every major discipline is represented. Currently the School in Uruguay has agreements with Universidad de la República's humanities faculty, psychology faculty, and sciences faculty, as well as its school of music and school of fine arts. 

The Universidad de la República's faculties of sciences and psychology are also where the School in Uruguay hosts its Neuroscience Track, which provides the opportunity for students to learn about neuroscience through specific courses that define and develop the field conceptually, as well as relate it to current interdisciplinary approaches.  The track focuses primarily on the biological, genetic, and behavioral variations of health among human populations in relation to environmental and social conditions.  In addition to coursework, students in the track will also have the opportunity to apply their studies in a real-world setting through guided laboratory research and a credit-bearing academic internship within a specific field of interest.
