Experiential Research, Traditional | Guacimo, Costa Rica
Study Abroad Coordinator: Colleen Boyle (email@example.com)
The Field Study Program in Costa Rica will be held on the campus of EARTH University in Guacimo, Costa Rica, an 8,000 acre estate 40 miles east of the capital city of San Jose.
The program is designed to give students the knowledge and skills to help organizations understand and act upon the principles of sustainability, and to gain a deeper understanding about the relationships between business, society and the environment in the Latin American context.
The first three weeks of the program will be spent at the Guacimo campus (Caribbean coast) and the fourth week at the La Flor campus (Pacific coast). The Caribbean coast has lush vegetation, mountains and white sand beaches, world-class fishing, bird watching, horseback riding and all types of water activities. The Pacific coast has first-rate beaches and is famous for its surfing, snorkeling, sailing, kayaking, and nearby wildlife refuges and national parks.
Costa Rica offers a variety of spectacular outdoor activities including breathtaking cloud forests, active volcanoes, stunning beaches, tropical nature preserves, and horseback riding. Included in the program, students will take two week-end trips: a canopy rainforest tour and a trip to the Arenal Volcano, a treat to watch, especially at night when red molten lava spurts from the volcano cone.
