Winter Study Abroad

** NEW FOR WINTER 2018 **

January 3-18, 2018


A Wesleyan faculty-led program with Professor Marcela I. Oteíza Silva.

Are you interested in Theater, Dance, Performance, Fine Arts and Romance Languages?  This could be the perfect study abroad program for you!  This is an incredible opportunity to be exposed to a variety of multi-cultural performances … access to world-class performing arts … right in the heart of it all.  The Festival International Santiago a Mil (FITAM) offers close to 80 performances within the span of three weeks in January.  Artists not easily seen in the United States, including Romeo Castellucci, Ariane Mnouchkine and Robert Lepage, have performed at this festival.

1-credit course ~ $3425 (limited Financial Aid available)
