(This program will not be offered in the 2014-2015 academic year.)
The Global College of Long Island University offers a four-week summer session in Costa Rica each year that allows students the opportunity to earn six credits toward their undergraduate studies at the Global College Costa Rica center. This program is designed to give students an overview of the critical peace, reconciliation and environmental issues in Costa Rica through a combination of classroom seminars, experiential learning, cultural immersion and self-study, and Spanish language training. Three weekend field trips to different parts of Costa Rica are included in the program. Students stay with host families while in Costa Rica.
Each selected student receives a scholarship of about $5,000 towards expenses. Students are responsible for the airfare (about $500), fees at LIU (about $500) and incidentals while in Costa Rica.
Students must apply to the Costa Rica Program by visiting the Associate Provost Office in M386. Students must have elementary knowledge of Spanish before applying or should take introductory Spanish at KCC in the Spring before departure.
