  • The Lang Global Immersion Program in New York and Costa Rica is a cutting-edge program that enables students to combine classroom learning with practical experience through research on and analysis of Central American social and economic issues. Students in the program have the opportunity to earn between 30 and 34 credits during their first year at Lang while learning about economic development, politics, the environment, sustainability, the rights of women, education, and human rights in the Central American context. The semester in Costa Rica also includes an internship with a social justice focus. 

    This program runs in partnership with ICADS (Institute for Central American Development Studies) in Costa Rica and is open to first-year and transfer students, with limited spaces for continuing students.
