Costa Rica

The study abroad program in Costa Rica, offered after the conclusion of the spring semester in odd-numbered years, provides biology and photography students at FHU with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience the incredible biodiversity of the Costa Rican rainforest. Students move from the classroom to the rainforest and replace textbooks with toucans as they spend two weeks studying and photographing local wildlife.

The group stays at the Laguna del Lagarto Lodge, where they explore trails through 1,250 acres of tropical rainforest, canoe on one of the property’s three lagoons, and take excursions to neighboring villages. The program supplements the curriculum of two courses offered the spring semester before departure: BIO 299G/399G Field Research and ART 299C/399C Special Topics in Photography.
