    Courses are carefully selected and developed to align with the first semester Freshman curriculum taught at Northeastern. Here, find the typical Freshman courses in which students are enrolled at Northeastern during the fall semester. In addition to fulfilling Major requirements, courses also count toward the NU Core, our institution-wide general education requirements for all students in all majors. Learn more about the NU Core philosophy>> Costa Rica operates as a cohort program, meaning students take courses with other students only. The courses are developed by ICDS and their professors, and focus on aspects of the society by which students are surrounded. All classes are conducted in English, with the exception of the Spanish language course. In addition to the 1-credit Global Experience course, all students are enrolled in Spanish, based on their proficiency level. Students who wish to participate in the Costa Rica program are not required to have any previous knowledge of Spanish, as proficiency exams are administered upon arrival in Costa Rica to determine Spanish language level.

    Sample Academic Schedule
    Here is an example of what a student's schedule may look like in Costa Rica. Students receive their course schedules with days and times for their courses once they arrive in Costa Rica.
