Pitzer in Costa Rica Academics
Advanced Spanish and Internship Track
Study trips to enhance the curriculum are an important part of the educational program. Destinations change from semester to semester but possible trips include:
Study Trip to Nicaragua
Students visit Nicaragua as part of the core course: Advanced Spanish in the Costa Rican Community.
Indigenous Boruca Community
Students will spend a day visiting a museum belonging to the Boruca, one of the eight indigenous groups of Costa Rica, and will work on a community project.
Study Trip to Panama
Students travel to Panama just after the midpoint of the semester. This trip allows students to compare what they have observed in Costa Rica with another Central American country and renew their visas. When students return to Costa Rica after being out of the country, they will be allowed to stay for another 90 days.
