LMU'S CASA DE LA MATEADA


JUST LOOK AT THESE DEAR STUDENTS,
STUDYING ABROAD AND MINGLING WITH LA GENTE OF ARGENTINA!

This week's arts and culture column begins like this:

A unique study-abroad program that brings students into contact not only with the needy but with God

Casa de la Mateada is a study-abroad experience, offered by our own Loyola Marymount University, which takes place over the course of a semester in Córdoba, Argentina.

The program is built on four “pillars”: Community, Accompaniment, Spirituality and Academics. Its name derives from “the beloved Argentinian drink, mate, often shared among families, friends and communities in a space of friendship and solidarity.”

Three days a week the students take classes at their Argentinian partner school, the Universidad Católica de Córdoba (UCC), a Jesuit university, like LMU.

The curriculum is mostly the same for everyone, and includes such courses as “Global Poverty,” “Sacred Place,” “Philosophy from the Periphery” and “Argentina: Language, Culture, and Literature.”
