Program Overview

Program Description:

On our Semester in Costa Rica program, you’ll live minutes from the heart of San José and study at Universidad Veritas. Use this capital city as your launch pad to explore the country’s biodiversity. At the University, you can take courses taught in English or Spanish, ranging from topics like Costa Rican culture to art studies. San José is the perfect place to improve your Spanish, with language classes for beginners to advanced speakers. In your free time, explore nearby volcanoes, venture into the rainforest, hit the beach, and embrace Costa Rican culture in this bustling capital. Pura vida!

Setting Description:
Costa Rica boasts a warm climate year-round and is well-known throughout the world as the “Switzerland of Central America” for its peaceful, democratic culture and government. Several international surveys deem this environmentally friendly nation to be the greenest, happiest country in the world, so you will be sure to have a great time! Costa Rica, which translates as “rich coast,” is bordered by both the Pacific and Atlantic oceans and has hundreds of miles of beautiful shoreline. And nearly a quarter of the country is protected as national parks. Rain forests, rivers, and volcanoes fill the interior of the country with diverse wildlife, and adventure opportunities abound (tread lightly!). The country is ranked 3rd in the world in terms of the 2010 Environmental Performance Index. Imagine whitewater rafting, hiking through a national reserve to see howler monkeys, or watching a leatherback turtle lay eggs on the beach. All are possible within a few hours of San Jose!
