SUSTAINABILITY IN COSTA RICA MAKES SENSE! Students can do two years in WIU and two years in Costa Rica or opt for doing the whole Degree in Costa Rica. Over 50 percent of Costa Rica’s land is covered with forests, national parks, reserves and indigenous reserves. We are aiming towards 60 percent. Costa Rica ranks third of sixty countries covered in the 2014 Global Green Economy Index [76]. In the sustainable tourism category, Costa Rica is ranked first. As of 2015, 99% of its electrical energy was derived from renewable energy sources, about 80% of which from hydroelectric power The entire country is under the jurisdiction of eleven large Conservation Areas. Over 25% of the national territory is included in the national parks, refuges, and protected zones within these eleven Conservation Areas. Costa Rica's progressive policies on environmental protection and sustainable eco-tourism in the National Parks System have been lauded as a model for other countries. The rainforests, tropical forests, marine areas and wetlands of Costa Rica are the subject of many university and scientific organization studies. MISSION To educate a generation sustainable development managers through collaborative learning, trans- and interdisciplinary approaches, and problem solving oriented training, to address some of the most important environmental, economic and social challenges of the 21st century. The curriculum is supported by the 17 SDG as guides for education and research tools that prepare students to find solutions to the challenges related to sustainability. The Bachelor's Degree builds on Costa Rica's long-standing and increasing commitment to seeking sustainable solutions to pressing social, environmental and economic challenges, and its long-standing history of international cooperation in a variety of fields. Our main goal is to enthuse and inspire future leaders in a learning environment built around the SDGs and a systems focus to problem solving through collaboration, critical thinking and interdisciplinary approaches. Our courses are designed to provide innovative hands-on education and research opportunities that will prepare students to be active and effective citizens in seeking solutions to unsustainable practices and the valuing ecosystem services. These solutions will focus on the need for citizen participation and systems thinking in the promotion and adoption of sustainable consumption and production practices relating to water quality and usage, energy, materials and technology, food systems, climate mitigation and adaptation, and environmental policy, among others. Student incoming profile The Bachelor's degree in Sustainable Development Management is suitable for students interested in development studies, social, environmental and natural sciences, humanities, policy development and planning, international relations, sustainable business and project management.

By the end of the 7th semester students will have a well-rounded perspective and be able to decide. During the core semesters students can start to pay attention to their particular interests which should help in the selection of their specialization track. When a student has questions in certain areas, he/she should try to talk with one of the faculty members specializing in the track areas. Students should analyze and reflect on their long-term professional goals, and in line with their passions and life calling in order to choose and develop their specialization. “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life,” Confucius. Field work All students will be required to develop a small proposal and carry out a Summer fieldwork Practicum based on an area of interest covered in their individual Specialization Track. The proposal will involve a 3-week sessions implementing the tasks identified in the proposal with the purpose of achieving the desired outcomes and the writing of a brief report.
