IS 236 - Costa Rica: Service Learning Abroad


2 credit(s)
Students will participate in service learning for two weeks in Costa Rica. During one week, we will provide manual labor on a project in a lower-income urban area (e.g., construction at a school), and during the other week we will volunteer on lower-income eco-friendly farms (e.g., shade coffee) in rural Monteverde. This will deepen students’ understanding of service learning and environment, health and income issues in Costa Rica, while providing services which locals find valuable. This trip includes homestays with Costa Rican families, and a weekend rest at Samara beach.
Offered: Alternate years.

Core Requirement(s): Counts toward core requirement: International Perspective; Diverse Perspectives; Civic Engagement.
