A U.S. university experience in Costa Rica?

by KM Belnap

Many bilingual students in Latin America plan to study in the States. You may have thought of doing the same.

Texas Tech University is a public U.S. institution that offers bachelor’s degrees in STEM- and management fields in Costa Rica. Its Latin American location means that students who are not 100% sure about going to the United States can prepare for a global career in the best place for them.

Students take the same classes listed in Texas Tech's undergraduate catalog and earn the same Texas Tech bachelor's degree.

When you enroll at Texas Tech-Costa Rica, you’ll become part of something bigger:

  • You will be a student at a world-recognized research university.
  • You will study under Ph.D.-holding professors who perform at the highest levels of their profession.
  • You will become a Red Raider, a nickname that ties you to thousands of Texas Tech students and alumni worldwide.
  • You will belong to an engaged community of students, from Costa Rica and beyond, who are driven to make a difference in the world.

Even though you'll be part of the history and traditions of Texas Tech University's home campus in the U.S., you'll still enjoy small classes and caring professors. If you are tackling a tough major like engineering or business, you might prefer a campus where the professors know your name instead of an enormous, hyper-competitive campus in the United States. And you'll establish networks in Costa Rica with professionals you'll know throughout your college years.

Whether you're in class or not, our purpose-built campus in Avenida Escazú brings you close to some of the best retail and restaurant options in greater San José. Parks, bike lanes, and other parts of the surrounding area will also enrich your campus experience.

At Texas Tech-Costa Rica, you can earn a U.S. university degree while enjoying an educational experience that many consider to be easier, cheaper, and better than traveling to the United States! Why not find out more?
