This hands-on, two-week winter intersession program offers students an experiential opportunity to learn about horticultural production systems in Costa Rica. With a UW faculty member and a group of UW students, you will integrate social and plant science knowledge in one of the world’s most biodiverse locations!
Several group excursions are included in the program, including coffee and pineapple farm tours, agricultural field trips, and visits to various agronomical centers ranging from small-scale farms to large international plantations. This program offers a unique opportunity for cultural immersion, specifically a holistic appreciation of the interaction between plants and societies.
An important note about this program is that students must be enrolled in Horticulture 376 the fall semester prior to their attendance on this winter intersession experience. The combination of courses meets the CALS International Studies Requirement. This program is also approved as a field experience for the Certificate in Global Health, although students of all majors and certificates are welcome.
