Program Overview

Program Description:
Since 1974, the fall ACM Costa Rica program has prepared students to explore Central America and beyond through an intensive and extremely effective Spanish language program, as well as coursework and experiences that further develop language skills, while deepening understanding in particular fields of student interest such as Public Health, Education, and the Environment. Field trips within Costa Rica give students an appreciation for the country’s astounding biodiversity, and for the cultural and historical elements that contribute to the nation’s distinct path within Central America.

Building on the framework of a liberal arts education, course offerings focus on analyzing Latin American culture, politics, and environment, as well as Spanish language acquisition. Like classes at ACM member schools, courses are discussion-centered, enrollments are small, and faculty work closely with students.

The Associated Colleges of the Midwest (ACM) is a consortium of academically excellent, independent liberal arts colleges located in Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Colorado. ACM has offered a wide variety of off-campus study programs around the world for over 40 years.
Setting Description:
The ACM center, located in the capital city of San José, is a Spanish-only environment with classrooms, library and computer facilities. In addition, students have access to recreational activities and library facilities at the University of Costa Rica.
