Every year, Dodge College students travel around the world, making documentaries and narrative feature films about issues and cultures well beyond the Southern California sunshine.  Over the next week, students are welcome to attend several general purpose information sessions to learn about the following travel courses, to Costa Rica and India, respectively.

Expedition Documentary, Inter-Term 2013 – “Human-Powered Costa Rica”

Imagine trekking through jungle trails, rafting and kayaking through deep gorges and banana plantations, and mountain-biking through lush countryside and indigenous villages. And making a documentary to chronicle it all – traversing all of Costa Rica, Pacific to Caribbean without ever turning on a motor.

If this sounds like an exciting way to spend Inter-Term, then consider joining Professor Jeff Swimmer and world-renowned adventure and wildlife cinematographer Bob Poole for Human-Powered Costa Rica, Inter-Term 2013’s popular Expedition Documentary course (FTV 416-616).

  • Cost will be approximately $4,000, including roundtrip airfare and all food, lodging and adventure equipment
  • Dates are January 7-18. Fitness and curiosity are a must
  • Interested students should go to the info session on October 23 at 10 PM in MKS 132
