Costa Rica

Costa Rica is a land of great diversity. From aquamarine waters that lap against pristine sandy beaches, to vast inland valleys revealing lush green savannahs, to majestic mountain slopes and stunning plateaus, down to dense tropical rain forests; Costa Rica offers you an incredible array of scenic beauty. For a country of its size, considered small by most standards, Costa Rica is truly a unique place in this world. A place in which, as a participant on UNO-COSTA RICA, you will revel in its many splendors.


The town of San Ramón, where UNO will conduct its summer program, is located in the Central Valley less than an hour from San José. The mountainous highland location is ideal during the summer months. This invigorating environment is just the location for a program combining academics, field trips, excursions, social life, travel, and cultural exchanges. 


The core of the program is a five week stay in San Ramón, Costa Rica. In keeping with the mission of the UNO-COSTA RICA program, courses taught are those enhanced by the setting in Costa Rica and Central America. A concerted effort will be made in all courses to reinforce the classroom instruction with the rich cultural, social, historical, and ecological surroundings.


UNO students in good standing are eligible to apply to this program. Non-UNO students are invited to enroll and must meet the general admission requirements of the University of New Orleans. Since this program is limited to a total of 35 student participants, classes will be kept small to insure maximum contact between students and professors. Early application is advised in order to reserve a place on the program.
