Summer Studies Abroad in Costa Rica

May 8, 2016 - June 5, 2016

Come study Spanish in Heredia, Costa Rica, the City of Flowers! Over the course of four weeks, you can earn six credits for courses in Spanish language, culture, and literature at the 2000 through 4000-levels. Courses are taught by UWG faculty and by faculty at the host school, the Intercultura Centro de Idiomas. In addition to academic classes, you can also participate in extracurricular activities such as dance classes, cooking classes, film series, and conversation exchanges with Costa Rican university students. You will live and dine with Costa Rican families selected carefully by Intercultura for their friendliness, welcoming homes, and proximity to the school. Please see Intercultura's website at
