Buenos Aires Study Abroad Program

Counseling@NYU students have the opportunity to study abroad in Buenos Aires, Argentina, as part of a course on multicultural and cross-cultural counseling.

Students who opt to enroll in the study abroad program will complete a 10-week online course and then spend one week abroad in Argentina, exploring how counselors, educators, and other helping professionals can develop cultural competence and cultural humility.

Cross-Cultural Counseling Course

In this course, students will explore how society and culture can influence behavior and experiences in Buenos Aires, a city with a rich, multicultural history.

During the 10-week online course, students will prepare for the one-week experiential study abroad experience by completing course work and discussing multicultural counseling concepts in live online classes.

While in Buenos Aires, students will immerse themselves in Argentinian culture and become acquainted with its cultural diversity and social justice challenges. Students will explore local models of wellness and human development through guest lectures and field visits with local educators, mental health professionals, and other service providers.


Tuition, registration, and service fees are the same as traditional Counseling@NYU course costs.

Below are additional fees for studying abroad, based on 2019 fees:

  • Housing and other fees as listed on the Steinhardt Global Affairs webpage
  • International airfare (not included in fees)
  • Books/academic materials
  • Personal meals (except for select group meals)

NYU Steinhardt graduate students are automatically considered for financial aid based on the number of credits in which they are enrolled. Students can also apply for need-based scholarships through Global Affairs.

Application Process

In order to be eligible to participate in study abroad opportunities, students must be in good academic standing.

Students interested in the study abroad program must first indicate their interest to their academic adviser to leave enough time for their plans of study to be modified.

Once students express a desire to enroll, they are encouraged to attend a Global Affairs webinar before applying through Global Affairs according to study abroad application deadlines.
