Last chance for Tropical Ecology program in Costa Rica

The Introduction to Tropical Ecology Maymester study abroad program has been very popular among students interested in Ecology, Biology, Forestry, Natural Resource Management, Environmental Science, and Sustainability. It’s also perfect for those simply interested in learning more about the natural world. Currently, the program is still accepting applications, but the deadline is approaching fast.


The program consists of an intensive 3-Week course, taught in English, focused on an introduction to Tropical Ecology. Each day, the class offers two parts - classroom instruction and a field study component. Since Costa Rica hosts more than 5% of the earth’s plant and animal species and 1/3 of the country is protected land, the field studies cover a wide range of topics and incorporate field trips, taking students all around the country (which is slightly smaller than West Virginia).


This program is a beautiful introduction to the study of Tropical Ecology and Costa Rica at large, and is only available through CEA study abroad programs. The program runs from May 17th to June 7th. But with CEA, you get more than just an academic program. Check out the full list of what’s included with your program price.


Jillian Peters, a 2007 program participant says, “This is wonderful trip for those wishing to experience the real beauty of Costa Rica. We explored off of the beaten track and saw the diversity of the whole country.”


To get started, call 1-800-266-4441 and you’ll be assigned your very own enrollment advisor to help you through every step of the application and course pre-approval process. This is one program that you don’t want to miss!
