API in Havana, Cuba: Cuban and Caribbean Studies and Spanish Language Semester
Students in Havana will have the opportunity to study Spanish language, Cuban culture, and humanitarian studies at the prestigious University of Havana (Universidad de la Habana). Come re-explore one of our closest neighbors, and experience the vibrancy of Cuba through study abroad in Havana!
Students who want to study abroad in Cuba and focus on Spanish language studies, as well as Cuban culture, would be well suited to this program. American students are now allowed to study in Havana so come take advantage of this unique opportunity!
Students are required to take a Spanish language course (with other international students). This course uses the Cuban experience as a backdrop for language practice, discussion, and writing assignments.
Students can choose their remaining courses from a selection of offerings in the Spanish Department for Non-Spanish Speakers with other international students or from integrated courses with Cuban students. Integrated classes may be taken in the Departments of Philosophy, History, Sociology, Literature, and Art History. Students may also choose to take a Cuban film seminar with international students through the Foundation for New Latin American Cinema.
Coursework will be supplemented by numerous cultural activities and excursions. Round-trip airfare from Miami to Havana is included in the program fee!
