NYU Buenos Aires offers a variety of ways for students to get involved in the community

Get out of the classroom and into the community!  Immerse yourself in Argentina’s culture and community and gain invaluable hands-on experience.  Explore Argentine society through the not-for-profit sector and discover how organizations address key issues facing Buenos Aires today.

NYU Buenos Aires has two great ways for students to get involved in the community. The Academic Internship Program offers a for-credit experience through the Internship Seminar and Fieldwork. And a non-credit experience through the Volunteer & Community Service Program.

Internship Seminar and Fieldwork

NODEP-UA 9982 or INDIV-UG 9150 - 4 points

Enrollment by permission only. Application required.  Intermediate Spanish or above is strongly recommended.

This course requires a 90-minute weekly seminar and a minimum of 10 hours fieldwork a week at an approved internship field site. The seminar is designed to complement your internship fieldwork, exploring many different aspects of your organization and of Argentine Civil Society. Your goal is to finish the semester with an in-depth understanding of your agency. The course provides you with tools to analyze your organization’s approach, its policies, its programs, and the political, legal, social, economic and cultural contexts in which it operates. Guest speakers are invited to the seminar and case studies on Argentina civil society are discussed. You will also spend time reflecting on the internship experience itself as a way to better understand your academic, personal, and career goals.
