Universidad San Francisco de Quito (USFQ) has over a decade of experience designing and carrying out customized programs of any length of time and academic focus throughout the year. Our programs typically range from one to eight weeks in duration and are tailor-made to meet the academic goals and expectations of our partners.

Past academic themes and topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Spanish Language Learning & Ecuadorian Culture,
  • Ecology & Conservation,
  • Marine Biology,
  • Evolutionary Psychology,
  • Gender & Postcolonial Studies,
  • Topics in Global Health,

The academic contents of a program can be offered fully by USFQ professors if desired or partly, through co-teaching options, Spanish language classes, and/or lectures on desired topics. USFQ can provide the academic credit for the course by providing transcripts if desired as well.
