Time has gone so fast and our Spring Semester Program is almost over!

During Block I, ICADS students enjoyed lectures about contemporary Costa Rica — biodiversity and ecosystems; the church, state, and gender; economic systems and human rights; informal economy; direct foreign investment, and colonialism. They also visited an organic coffee farm and learned about land use capacity.

In Week 3, ICADSers went to Nicaragua, where they lived with local families and talked about the Revolution, transnationals, fair trade, migration, and microcredit. Spanish classes helped them to improve communication and understanding skills. The final presentations topics were related to Costa Rican history, culture and idiosyncrasy.
