Study abroad

School Counseling students have the unique opportunity to take their studies and service abroad. In Summer 2020, students will travel to Costa Rica. While there, students will interact with students and educators in the capital city of San Jose, as well as in the remote Osa Peninsula. They will develop a deeper sense of self-awareness in a global context, and experience the natural beauty and ecological diversity of Costa Rica through immersive community service in a Mangrove reforestation project. Learn more about study abroad opportunities >>
