CEA: Study Abroad in San Jose, Costa Rica
We offer three programs in San José: Spanish Language, Liberal Arts & Environmental Sciences, Medical Spanish & Health, and Intensive Spanish Language. It doesn’t matter how long you go -- you will be able to absorb the language and the culture through your classes and experiences. In addition, elective courses will also be offered and include Film Studies, Dance, Art History, and more.
Our partner university, Veritas University, and our CEA San José Study Center – Extension, will provide you with the resources you need to accomplish your academic goals. Veritas University is one of the most highly recognized private universities in Latin America, with approximately 2,000 students, 500 of whom are international.
Outside of the classroom, we also offer excursions and cultural engagements to help you explore the city of San José. Visit Manuel Antonio National Park, located on the Central Pacific coast -- it is home to many endangered species. Or stop by Arenal Volcano and La Fortuna, where you can enjoy a hike to La Fortuna Waterfall and swim in the jungle.
CEA makes sure your housing, health, safety, social engagement, and other needs are taken care of. Giving you the best possible study abroad experience is our top priority.
