Students participating in the Cuba program will connect with Cubans directly to learn first-hand about the Cuban experience. Students will begin by spending time in the vibrant capital city of Havana. Then, we will travel to other rural and urban centers, including the historic village site of the Bay of Pigs, the colonial city of Cienfuegos on the southern Caribbean coast, and Santa Clara, famous for its monuments to Ernesto "Che" Guevara. Throughout this study abroad course, students 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 program include Cuban history, Cuban-US relations, political economy, governance, arts and culture, education, public health, community development, and political systems.
