Exploring Community & Culture
IFSA-Butler's Exploring Community & Culture program (C&C) in Buenos Aires is designed to take your study abroad experience to another level. It encourages you to get the most out of your time abroad by blending intercultural learning with an exploration of the local communities and cultures. Selected activities will foster your intercultural learning through a series of on-site discussions and self-reflection.
Through this program you will be encouraged to engage with the community in which you are living and question your own perspective of the world, while learning to appreciate similarities and differences between cultures and communities.Students who have participated in the C&C in past semesters have found it a great way to explore and get to know their host communities and, with their fellow IFSA-Butler students, to learn interculturally from their everyday experiences.
