Description
Go beyond the classroom and gain hands-on experience applying anthropology and civil and environmental engineering to address community health issues. Learn about the Costa Rican health care system while finding culturally relevant solutions for the health concerns of local populations through guided research projects. On this program, students will obtain valuable research experience and will utilize those skills to work in rural communities. Students will gain an understanding of applied science beyond what a book could ever provide, all while enjoying the warmth and welcoming nature of Costa Rican culture and the breath-taking cloud forests of Monteverde.
