Students will study the history, geography, arts culture, and people of Cuba, all while learning to produce a media program and experiencing musical immersion. Participants will additionally engage in Cuba’s traditions, including the unique experience of burning rag dolls on New Year’s Eve!

We will spend time in La Habana and several other locations, which will include excursions like a driving tour of Havana in beautifully restored 1950s American automobiles. We will also tour an eco-community of artists, take salsa lessons, see live concerts, and visit sites such as a coffee farm, a rum factory, a cigar plantation, and the Che Guevara Mausoleum.
