International Studies Program - San Juan, Puerto Rico

Why choose San Juan?
Known today as “La Ciudad Amurallada” (the walled city), San Juan is one of the biggest natural harbors in the Caribbean and the oldest city in United States territory. It is also the one of the largest capitals in the Caribbean, with a population of around 2.73 million people. Old San Juan holds many of the government buildings and is characterized by its seventeenth and eighteenth century colonial style which echoes its Spanish ancestry.

About the International Studies Program
The International Studies program is specially designed for students who want a rich immersion experience on a Spanish campus. The program integrates thoughtful synthesis of study visits, language exchanges, volunteer, and other cultural opportunities into the curriculum, so that you may more fully integrate into the puertorriqueño culture.
