Latin American Studies Program

Students study Latin American economics, culture, politics, and faith when they journey to Costa Rica for seventeen weeks of travel, study and service. The San Jose-based Latin American Studies Program includes home stays, language study, service projects, and travel to other Central American countries. Students who prefer a specialized experience can choose from concentrations in Latin American Studies, Advanced Language and Literature, International Business (fall) and Biological Science (spring).

“LOVE! The unconditional love that I was shown no matter where I went was one of the most amazing things I have ever experienced. My host families genuinely loved me the second I walked into the door. Because of the language barrier, our communication was a little limited however, every person I came into contact with showed me how much they loved me. This type of love is what we, as Christians, are called to show to everyone. I hope and pray that I may imitate this unconditional love to every person I come into contact with here or wherever I end up!”
