The Costa Rican Mass Communication Program provides students with the opportunity to gain a greater understanding of Latin America and its current state of international affairs, focusing on Costa Rica and its neighboring Central American countries.

Students meet with local media experts, analysts, and industry innovators, exploring the history, politics, economy, and culture of Costa Rica and Latin America more broadly, focusing on the vital role that journalism has in a democratic society. In addition to these analytical exercises, students will practice writing, reporting, and photography, learning strategies to most effectively convey content in a professional, creative, and engaging way.
