Students from colleges on trimester/term or block schedules now have a new option to conduct independent field research in Costa Rica in the spring. The Costa Rica: Field Research in the Environment, Social Sciences, & Humanities program is offering a Spring Trimester Option beginning in Spring 2010.
Students at San Gerardo de Rivas in Costa Rica.
This new 11-week schedule, from early April to mid-June, provides the opportunity to complete an individual project, as well as experience Costa Rican language and culture through courses and home stays. From oral histories to deforestation and animal behavior studies, from archaeological projects to public health surveys – students can work in a wide variety of disciplines with highly-qualified advisors. ACM’s extensive contacts in Costa Rica, built over the program’s 45-year history, are the key to opening doors for ACM students.
Applications for this new spring trimester option will be accepted through January 31, 2010. You can find details about this new option, as well as complete information about all aspects of the program, on the Costa Rica program webpage.

Another program option that’s tailor-made for students at trimester/term and block schools takes place in Florence, one of Europe’s most fascinating cities. ACM’s Florence Only/Winter Term option gives students 11 weeks of courses and language study from early January through mid-March.
Along with living in an Italian household, extensive field trips in Florence and to other cities provide immersion in modern Italian culture. See the Florence: Arts, Humanities, & Culture program webpage for complete details.
