We offer two unique summer study abroad programs in Costa Rica! In both, you will get the opportunity to study Spanish abroad and perfect your language skills. For either five or eight weeks, you can earn credits in Spanish language, language and culture, and an elective course with our general summer study abroad program. If you choose our more specific program, Spanish for Health Professionals in Costa Rica, you will spend five weeks learning more about international health and studying health-related vocabulary in Spanish.
