Universidad Latina - Heredia

Summer 1 2017 + Service-Learning (May 27, 2017 to Jul 29, 2017)
Catalog Code: IHAEU1117

Academic Information
The summer program at the Universidad Latina - Heredia is designed for students at the intermediate and advanced language levels. It is ideal for students who need to complete a full 90 hours of Spanish language instruction during the first 5-weeks of the session in order to earn six credit hours or nine quarter units of Spanish. The classroom environment is made up of ISA and international students. Students are placed into a language level according to the number of semesters/quarters of college-level Spanish they have previously taken.

Service-Learning Information

During the final four weeks of the program, students will work 15-35 hours per week at a host organization, increasing language proficiency and gaining valuable international experience. Placements are arranged prior to arrival in the host country and language requirements may vary. Visit the ISA Service-Learning website for more information on placement opportunities.

Service-Learning placements are coordinated by ISA and have no affiliation with the university. Students will develop a Portfolio throughout the program, documenting their projects, hours, and program activities.

Students can earn 1-6 credits based on the number of contact hours accrued at the host organization and successful completion of the Portfolio. Visit the Academic Credit page of the ISA Service-Learning website for more information.
