FLACSO -DR opened its doors in 1986. Instituto Technológico de Santo Domingo (INTEC) is a private university founded in 1972 by professionals and businessmen. It is considered one of the top academic institutions in the Dominican Republic. Instituto Filosófico Pedro Francisco Bonó (El Bonó) is a prestigious Jesuit institute of higher learning specializing in philosophy and social sciences. The Escuela Técnica Superior - at the Instituto Cultural Dominico-Americano (ICDA) established in 1947 as a private institution of higher learning. It offers courses on TESOL and TOEFL teaching methodologies. There will also be courses offered each semester at the Universidad Autónoma de Santo Domingo (UASD),one of the oldest in the continent, founded through a Bula In Apostulatus Culmine issued by Pope Paul III in 1538.
