UGA Costa Rica Program

In 2001 UGA purchased a working farm in the upper San Luis Valley of the Monteverde region in Costa Rica. While it remains a working farm, a fully operational campus has been developed on this site. UGA Costa Rica offers inter-disciplinary, field-based learning opportunities and cultural immersion in a tropical cloud forest environment. In Fall 2005, UGA opened the Costa Rica Office on campus in Athens.

In 2014, a one hour television documentary was produced that tells a beautiful story about the exciting opportunities for UGA students who study in Costa Rica.

The documentary is available for viewing online at by clicking here.
