Study Abroad: Cuba 2017

Program Description

This faculty-led course will give students the opportunity to explore Cuba at a crucial moment in its history. Students will witness a nation caught between its revolutionary past and an uncertain future. They will gain first-hand information about the island’s social, cultural and economic evolution during a 13-day full-immersion trip to the Western Hemisphere’s only socialist nation. They will meet everyone from authors and entrepreneurs to artists and musicians while learning how Cuba has changed since the United States and Cuba restored diplomatic relations in 2015.
