Each year in January, the Program in International Relations runs a special winter session course in what is called ‘J-Term’ at NYU. More information about the course can be found here.
Approximately two weeks in duration, students live in the Recoleta District, in the heart of Buenos Aires. All classes are held at NYU’s Buenos Aires global site which offers a full range of support services to students. Buenos Aires is one of the world’s great cities, often called ‘The Paris of Latin America’ offering an array of cultural opportunities for the visitor to explore.
Whilst onsite students have scheduled free time to explore the city and to travel further abroad if they wish. Past day trips include Colonia, Uruguay.
The course taught in Buenos Aires is ‘The Armed Forces, Society and Transitional Justice in Argentina’ which is an interdisciplinary exploration of the relationship between the military and society in Argentina. The dates for J-Term 2020 are Sunday, January 5th to Saturday, January 18th. The course is taught in English by Professor Michael John Williams.
