Study abroad at VERITAS
For students who wish to study abroad in Costa Rica, but are not fluent in Spanish, Veritas offers a broad range of elective courses all taught in English. Courses have a minimum enrollment policy of 6 students. 4 credit (60 hrs.) courses have mandatory field sessions and some may require Laboratory hours.
Spanish Taught Courses are offered exclusively to students with an advanced level of Spanish. See the Calendar for details.
Classes include the analysis of linguistic and extra-linguistic elements during interactive reading,writing and conversation. Placement depends on an assessment of the structural knowledge and the results of the ACTFL interview. All levels evaluate the student's oral, listening, reading and writing skills.
This program fully embodies the idea of practical learning, as students are immersed in a 2 to 3-week intensive, short-term course. Most courses are a combination of class contact hours and practical field activities. Some of these courses require a 1-week online component prior to coming to Costa Rica.
