Students may choose between the following Program Terms:

Arts and Design Courses with Locals - Universidad Veritas

The Arts and Design Courses with Locals semester program at the Universidad Veritas is open to students at the high-advanced Spanish level. Students will choose a total of 4 courses from the following categories: Courses with Costa Ricans, Language Modules, and/or General Electives. Students may choose any combination to complete their 4 choices as long as scheduling permits; however, students MUST take at least one course with locals. The Language Modules are 4 weeks long, while the General Electives are 12 weeks. All courses with locals last for the entire semester. For an extra fee, and if schedules allow, students may take a fifth course. Students who do not place into the high-advanced level on the mandatory Veritas University placement exam will not be eligible for this program and must switch into the Spanish Language, Liberal Arts and Environmental Studies program.

Students may also add a San Jose Intensive Month program to a Semester/Year program in Costa Rica for a discounted price.
