Apply To This Program
The Spanish Language, Liberal Arts & Environmental Studies program is designed for students at all levels of Spanish proficiency. All courses are taught at Universidad Veritas by local university professors. ISA students study alongside other international students.
What is the difference between the A and B programs?
The A program is ideal for students who would like to improve their proficiency in the Spanish language in a short period of time. Students will be in the classroom for a total of 80 hours. This program is ideal for students who want to add a month to the beginning of ISA's trimester to prepare for the program or simply to extend the program by one month. The A program allows students to complete up to four courses of college level Spanish (compared to three with the B program). Both programs offer additional electives in various fields during one 12-week session in Costa Rica. Several of the electives offered are taught in Spanish (for advanced level Spanish speakers) and others are taught in English. Students in the Fall 1A program are entitled to enroll in a total of five courses (combination of electives and four-week language courses). A placement exam is required to determine language level.
Trimester + Trimester Programs Available: Students may participate in the Winter/Spring + Fall OR the Fall + Winter/Spring sessions of this program by selecting their two trimesters of interest when submitting the initial ISA online application.
