Study Abroad in Cuba through Marist College

Academic Programs International (API) is pleased to introduce Marist College’s innovative new semester-long study abroad program in collaboration with the University of Havana in Cuba, beginning in September 2012. This new program has been designed with faculty at the University of Havana to provide a focus on Caribbean Studies through coursework in the Facultades de Artes y Letras (Arts and Humanities) and Filosofía e Historia (Social Sciences), as well as the Colegio Universitario San Jerónimo located in historic old Havana. API is pleased to promote this program for Marist College, which is open to both Marist and non-Marist students. Marist is  currently accepting applications for the fall 2012 semester.

The program will include two courses specifically designed for students on the program, covering the culture, politics, and economics of the Caribbean, as well as a pre-semester intensive advanced Spanish language course. Students will also enroll in regular University of Havana courses from the areas of Latin American, Caribbean and Cuban art; music; Cuban and Caribbean culture literature and history; philosophy; and the cultural and political processes of Cuban society. Coursework will be complemented by educational excursions (included in the program fee) and tentatively include trips to Las Terrazas (eco-village and UNESCO Reserve), Cayo Jutía (tropical island off the northwest coast of Cuba); Soroa (Castle of Clouds); Trinidad (UNESCO World Heritage Site), Santa Clara (Capital of Villa Clara), Cienfuegos (UNESCO World Heritage Site); Oriente (Capital of the Eastern Province), and Baracoa (Cuba’s oldest city).Students must have strong Spanish language skills and be ready to take coursework in the Spanish language.

Housing in a small hotel setting, with other program students, is guaranteed on the program. Breakfast is also provided as part of the program fee. A Resident Director will be on site in Havana throughout the program to assist students in registering for courses and cultural adjustment. Priority deadline for fall 2012 is February 22 (applications accepted thereafter on a space-available basis). Applicants are encouraged to apply early.

More information on academics, logistics, applying for the program, a selection of photographs, etc. is available on our website http://www.apistudyabroad.com/programs/cuba.
