Once foreign students arrive at CEDEI’s International Programs Department, they learn about various aspects of Latin-America including: culture, language, economic reality, society and politics.

Currently, this department is hosting two student programs.  The first group from Augustana College set out from the United States in the beginning of June.  The students of this group will complete a broad schedule of activities.  Included in this schedule is a lecture on migration in which they will learn about its causes and consequences.   They will also have the opportunity to learn to dance to tropical rhythms in weekly dance classes.

The second group of students that is studying at CEDEI’s International Programs Department is Dickinson College which has been here since July 3rd.  These students are leaving Ecuador soon and they are going to present their finial projects and take their final exams.   The special part about this program is that they are going to continue their studies in Argentina.
