Universidad Católica de Córdoba is a private Jesuit university located in the City of Córdoba, Argentina. The university aspires to be an institution that affects the construction of a better social order by training students and graduates to be competent and committed to learning knowledge throughout their education at the university with relevant course work inspired by Jesuit ideals of consistently exceeding the levels of demand.
Students are required to have completed a minimum of five semesters of university-level Spanish courses, or its equivalent, prior to the exchange. At SDSU that means that you are at least ready to start at class level for SPAN 301 - Advanced Conversation & Reading. If this minimum knowledge of the language cannot be proven, but UCC estimates it can be obtained through our pre-session Spanish intensive course, the students' acceptance into the exchange program will depend on their registering for this course offered in February and July.
Semester 1 (SDSU Spring Semester): Early March - Late July
Semester 2 (SDSU Fall Semester): Late July - Late December
Note: Classes of the freshman year courses from different academic units may be extended one week after the end of first semester and one week before the beginning of second semester.
