Students participating in the Cuba program will connect with Cubans directly to learn first hand about the Cuban experience. Students will begin by spending one week in the historic and vibrant capital city of Havana. Then, students will spend a week visiting other rural and urban centers, including the small agricultural town of Viñales, the historic site of the Bay of Pigs, and the colonial city of Trinidad (a UNESCO World Heritage site).

Throughout the trip, students in the program will visit community organizations, nonprofits, and government agencies for hands-on community-based learning. Cuban professors from the University of Havana and representatives from Cuban governmental and nongovernmental organizations will provide insights that foster a deep understanding of the Cuban cultural and historical context. Prominent themes covered throughout the two-week program will include Cuban history, Cuban-US relations, political economy, governance, arts and culture, education, public health, community development, and political systems.
