Program Description 

Did you know that Cuba is the only country that Americans need government permission to visit? In fact, there are very few ways to visit Cuba, but this Summer School Abroad (SSA) will let you do just that! 

This is a 29-day immersive program to Cuba where you can study Spanish (elementary to advanced) and/or a course on Cuban Culture directly at the University of Havana. Not sure of your language level? Don't worry; you'll take a quick placement exam on site and be placed into the course that best meets your needs. We are also providing additional seminars about Cuban music, politics, and history.

This SSA includes:

  • Salsa lessons
  • Walking tour of Old Havana
  • Visit to a farmer's market
  • Meeting with a Cuban rap group
  • Visit to a classic car co-op
