2019-2020 Study Abroad Opportunities
Colonial and Cold War Cuba
Spring Break – March 7–15, 2020
This program provides an opportunity to visit Cuba, one of the most unique countries in the world. Before traveling to Cuba, students will learn about Cuba’s strategic and economic importance to the Spanish colonial empire and, after 1901, Cuba’s diplomatic and financial value to the United States. The study abroad component begins in Havana, a city of two million people that has an exciting history and vibrant arts scene. Students will visit important and interesting sites related to both colonial and Cold War Cuban History. You will walk the beaches of the Bay of Pigs, the site of the failed 1961 invasion that helped determine the future course of U.S.-Cuban relations. You will also get to explore the streets of Trinidad, a UNESCO world heritage site that is home to historical colonial sugar plantations.
