  • Global and Community Health
  • International Relations and Political Science
  • Language, Literature, and Culture
  • STEM and Society (Merida and Monteverde only)
At some locations, service learning, internship, and research opportunities are available.

This program is taught primarily in English. Students who want to focus on language-learning should consider programs offering Spanish immersion.
