  • POLT 543: The Politics of Costa Rica. 4 credit, 3-week UNH Political Science course is complemented with a 3 transfer credit Spanish language course offered through the Universidad Latina. For more than half a century, Costa Rica has been touted as the democratic success story of Central America. While the rest of the region has struggled to overcome authoritarian legacies, Costa Rica has been a trailblazer on the path to democracy. The successful establishment of democratic political institutions and political culture has been coupled with a series of other innovations, including the abolition of the military, investments in human capital, and the balance of economic development with sustainability. This course is designed to explore the many facets of Costa Rican exceptionalism. Under the direct onsite supervision of a UNH faculty member, students will combine the study of Costa Rican politics with field research in Costa Rica. This field research will include trips to government agencies and other political organizations, as well as periodic lectures by Costa Rican political actors and scholars. Contact Professor Mary Malone, 862-1406.
