Course work, readings, and assignments are in English. 1 week is dedicated to a trip to the Caribbean province of Costa Rica

With over 100 placement sites we base your internship on your needs, interests, and Spanish proficiency, you will be placed in an individualized internship for 8 weeks to gain experience in urban or rural areas in a field of their interest. With previous communication, an internship may be arranged in an area of special credit interest/need of a student.
