Costa Rica (San José) – Ecology, Politics, and EnvironmentEXTENDED DEADLINE: April 19

The Stone Center invites students to study the ecological wealth and political development of Costa Rica – perhaps the world’s most vibrant case study in environmental protection – and surrounding countries through the Tulane Summer in Costa Rica program. For four weeks, participants study and live at the prestigious Centro de Investigación y Adiestramiento Político Administrativo, a private environmental and public policy think tank located within minutes of downtown San José offering easy access to the rest of the country. Students enroll in two courses for a total of six credits: Climate Change, Biodiversity, and Tropical Forests (Ecology & Evolutionary Biology) and Governments of Central America & the Caribbean (Political Science). Both courses are taught in English. The dates for this 2010 program are June 6 – July 9, 2010.
