Come study abroad in Costa Rica with ICDS next summer or semester with the Spanish, Social Justice, and Sustainable Development Program. Differing slightly from other ICDS programs, students have only two requirements: the Human Development & Society in Latin America course and a Spanish language course, which varies by the students skill prior to the program. The remaining three courses are chosen from a list of six options, all pertaining to social justice and sustainable development.
Students will enjoy the beautiful city of San Jose, where they will live with a carefully selected host family as a guest in their home. This gives students the chance to live like a local, as well as have a warm and welcoming home to come back to every night. Host families will only speak to students in Spanish, which will help drastically improve their Spanish language proficiency in a much shorter amount of time than simply taking a Spanish class.
