Through the Online On-Site Hybrid Summer program, students will take a combination of one elective taught in English or Spanish and one intensive Spanish language course. This exciting program offers electives in areas as varied as Environmental Studies, Arts, Philosophy, Marketing or Spanish Literature to name just a few. For the elective course, you will have 2 weeks of online instruction at home and then 4 weeks of face-to-face classes in Costa Rica. The online portion of the class will allow you to interact with your professor and classmates through Moodle, a virtual platform for Internet-based courses. Once in Costa Rica, you will officially meet your professor and classmates and together continue with the course chronogram at Veritas University.
Costa Rica is bordered by the Caribbean Sea to the east and the Pacific Ocean to west; in between, you'll find everything from lush cloud forests to sunny beaches, rural villages to thriving urban centers. The capital city of San José is home to about 1.6 million people and is situated in the Central Valley, guarded by majestic volcanoes and tropical rainforests. This democratic nation takes great pride in the fact that it has more teachers than policemen, and has not had a standing army in more than 50 years. br/>
Renowned for its natural beauty, enlightened conservation, and friendly people, Costa Rica draws visitors from all over the world. CEA students can look forward to experiencing the Costa Rican attractions and lifestyle through trips to Arenal Volcano, natural hot springs, and waterfalls. They'll explore tropical forests and experience first-hand the unique Afro-Costa Rican culture of Puerto Viejo.
