Study Abroad in Cuba!

The Center for Global Education at Augsburg College is pleased to announce that we will be launching a semester study abroad program in Havana, Cuba in the Fall of 2012.  The program is entitled History, Culture, and Politics of Cuba.

Building on experience in the country that dates back to 1999 - including more than a dozen seminars between September 2011 and January 2012 - this program will introduce students to decision-making processes, citizenship rights, paternalism, centralism, bureaucracy, the role of mass organizations, collective rights, and the means of community.  Students will also explore social justice as it relates to wealth production, market mechanisms, and socialization.  The program will also delve into race, class, gender, and sexual orientation in the Cuban context.   Earn credit in Sociology, Political Science, History, and Spanish.

Experience this unique island nation and experience a culture few others ever will!

Application deadline for Fall 2012 is April 1, 2012
