UNAM GardensThe UNAM program offers UO students the opportunity to direct enroll in Mexico City’s prestigious Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM). Students with an advanced Spanish language level can take regular university courses in most academic fields, while also having access to the National Library and the archival collections in the Hemeroteca Nacional. Because classes are taught entirely in Spanish, this program is suitable for students who have completed three years of college-level Spanish or more. 


  • Students experience Mexico City, the capital and cultural center of Mexico, and one of the biggest cities in the world.
  • The UNAM offers courses in a wide array of academic disciplines, including the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, engineering, and business.
  • Semesters are 18 weeks long and students can earn up to 18-26 credits per semester
  • Students enroll in one of the largest and arguably the most prestigious university in Latin America.
  • Participants have the opportunity to fully immerse themselves in campus life, to interact and take classes with Mexican students, and to appreciate the culture, architecture, history, and society of Mexico City.


Note:  The programs in Mexico are monitored for University of Oregon students because of the current U.S. Department of State Travel Warning. Students must submit an additional waiver to attend this program. The waiver form can be found under the Admission and Preparation Section.
