Experience Costa Rica!

The Department of Languages and Literature is pleased to announce that the Experience Costa Rica! study abroad program is now open for enrollment. There are two tracks that students can take in Costa Rica:

1. Humanities 405 (HUMA 405) and Spanish 101 or 102 (6 hours)
If you choose the Spanish track, you will take either Spanish 101 or Spanish 102 in addition to HUMA 405. By studying in Costa Rica, your language learning will be constantly reinforced by your immersion in the culture and language. Intensive study with a Nicholls’ professor will be enhanced by Spanish practice outside of the classroom.

2. Humanities 405 and English 266 (6 hours)

If you are doing the all-English track, ENGL 266: Nonfiction Prose Writing will involve your writing travel diary entries, giving descriptions of each place you will visit, and also exploring cultural differences between your home communities and various Costa Rican communities. You will also explore differences within the Costa Rican communities that you visit.

For more information, please phone: (985) 448-4854, or email Dr. Robin White (robin.white@nicholls.edu) or contact Dr. Bryant Smith (james.smith@nicholls.edu) at (985) 448-4980. The deadline to sign up is December 18, 2013.
