Why should I study abroad?
Study abroad is one of the most important and exciting parts of any academic program in languages, but no matter what your interest or major, you will benefit from an international study experience. Wayne State College offers a Costa Rica program carefully structured to ensure excellent classroom instruction as well as plenty of time for touring and independent exploration.

 

In the Costa Rica Program, students learn Spanish in a total immersion setting; they gain geographical and historical knowledge and they live with people from a different culture. In this process students may increase their interest in other cultures, become less ethnocentric as they become aware of cultural difference and develop language skills within a cultural context. Students may gain a better understanding of the US by living abroad; they often develop confidence, a strengthened sense of personal identity and flexibility.
