Custom & Faculty-Led Programs

Our custom study abroad programs are specially designed to meet the expectations and needs of institutional groups, third-party providers, faculty-led groups or student groups. 

Ready to start your request for a custom program? Read our Custom and Faculty-Led Programs brochure here to learn how.

Your own custom program may include site visits, special topic speakers, transportation, housing, recreational trips throughout Costa Rica and various other cultural activities with our student organizations.  

We also design, organize and lead special events like international food fairs, dance and language lessons or tutoring, as requested by faculty and students. We can accommodate the needs of customized programs to small or large groups. These programs do not require a minimum of contact hours and can be designed and offered in different areas of study at different times of the year. Simply share your vision with us!    

Some of the areas in which we have customized different types of courses and programs are, among others:

  • Environmental Studies 
  • Peace Studies and Conflict Resolution  
  • Sustainable Tourism 
  • Spanish Language & Latin American Studies
  • International Business
  • Entrepreneurship 
  • Corporate Social Responsibility
