USF's two-week cultural program in Costa Rica is designed to accelerate and enhance students' knowledge of education in Costa Rica as well as Costa Rican literature (for those enrolled in LAE 4469, LAE 6467, or EDE4943).

By participating in this intensive cross-cultural study, students participate in a global experience, and make progress while meeting summer enrollment graduation requirements. The program features an immersion into Costa Rican culture while observing classrooms, visiting cultural landmarks, and reading its literature, taught by USF professors in pleasant facilities.
