Central America's culture and history are vibrant and diverse, even despite the region making up a relatively small portion of the Americas.

Partnering with the Costa Rica Institute of Technology, students will complete coursework while participating in excursions to cultural, historical, and natural sites including Orosí Valley and the Arenal Volcano.
