Tags: Ethnic Studies Latin American Studies Spanish

Advisor: Madera Allan

This interdisciplinary ACM program is for students seeking to develop an understanding of life in Latin America. Language study is stressed as the key to understanding the culture. Coursework in language, literature, geography, anthropology, politics, and cultural change enables students to develop insights that are reinforced by field trips and two weeks of field work in rural areas. Students conduct an independent study project focusing on an aspect of Costa Rican culture of particular interest to them. Students live with host families.

Students who will be sophomores, juniors, or seniors are eligible. At least two years of college Spanish (or the equivalent) is required.
