Students in the Latin American Studies Program have the opportunity to live and learn in Latin America while based in San Jose, Costa Rica. The program introduces students to a wide range of experiences through the study of the language, literature, culture, politics, history, economics, ecology and religion of the region. Living with a Costa Rican family, students experience and become a part of the day to day lives of typical Latin Americans. Students also take part in a service opportunity and travel for three weeks to nearby Central American nations.
Students participate in one of four concentrations: Latin American Studies (offered both fall and spring terms); Advanced Language and Literature (limited to Spanish majors and offered both fall and spring terms); International Business and Management (offered only in fall terms); and Tropical Sciences (offered only during spring terms). Students in all concentrations earn 16-18 semester credits under the LAS prefix on a Colorado Christian University transcript. Contact CCU’s Life Directions Center for more information.
The Council for Christian Colleges & Universities (CCCU), an association of 120 campuses in the U. S. and Canada, offers semester and summer programs to students of its member institutions. The programs offer a unique opportunity for students to make the world their classroom, going beyond the confines of the traditional classroom. These interdisciplinary learning opportunities are available to upper-class students. For further information, contact CCU’s Life Directions Center for CCU-specific application procedures.
