Winter break study abroad course in Cuba
Adelphi University’s journalism program is offering a 2-week study abroad course in Cuba this January. The course is worth 3-credits and open to undergraduate students from all universities.
This unique course, “Global Perspectives: Cuba in Transition,” introduces students to the transition underway in Cuba due to the recent opening of diplomatic and economic relations with the U.S. From January 5 to 16, 2016, the class will travel to Cuba and visit Havana as well as some more rural parts of the western Cuban coastline.
Students will be interviewing, shooting video, capturing audio, reporting, writing and reading. They will be meeting government officials, dissidents, local business owners, media professionals and a host of citizen-driven organizations and ultimately engage with how Cubans and outsiders are already attempting to leverage and respond to this critical moment in history.
All-inclusive cost (flights, housing, food, tuition, activities, visa fees) is approximately $6,900. Apply by October 1, 2015.
