The Universidad Veritas, with a student population of approximately 1,900, offers intensive Spanish language instruction to students from all around the world. This program offers students the opportunity to advance their Spanish language skills while taking other courses in English taught by bilingual faculty. No previous knowledge of Spanish is required. The semester elective courses Environment and Society, Introduction to Tropical or Marine Ecology, Introduction to International Business, Intercultural Communication, and others offered in the arts and humanities are taught in English. Some elective courses are taught in Spanish. Advanced level Spanish students may integrate with regular Universidad Veritas courses. This requires students to arrive approximately three weeks earlier and pay additional costs.
Additional features: students have the opportunity to enroll in Costa Rica Colloquium, which includes excursions to museums and other cultural and historical sites as part of the program.
Located in a residential section of town, Universidad Veritas is situated in the capital city of San Jose´. Students have easy access to museums, restaurants, bustling markets, and the National Theatre. There are nearby beaches, within a few hours' drive.

Universidad Veritas – Semester/Year
San Jose, Costa Rica
A small, democratic country in Central America nestled between the Caribbean and the Pacific Ocean, Costa Rica is exceptional in that many environments can be visited within a short time. Rain forests, cloud forests, unspoiled beaches, coral reefs, white water rivers and volcanoes can be reached within a couple of hours by car from San José. Costa Rica is one of the few stable, democratic republics in Latin America. It has the highest standard of living of the Central American countries. The health record is excellent, and illiteracy is very low. Peaceful by nature, the Costa Ricans have no army, as it was abolished in 1948.
