An eclectic summer studying a unique society and culture

This program brings you an exceptional educational and life experience in one of the most extraordinary places in the world. You will live, study and take part in Cuban society, enjoying the country’s special eclectic mix of Latin, European and American cultures.

This exciting program is taught in cooperation with our academic partner, the University of Havana and its Centro de Estudios Hemisféricos y sobre Estados Unidos (CEHSEU - Center for Hemispheric and U.S. Studies). You’ll enroll in two courses, which focus on Cuban and U.S. relations and Spanish language. All courses are taught in English, except the Spanish language classes.

  • The Arcadia Resident Director and a Cuba Program Director (faculty member) from the University of Havana assist you in navigating the unique culture and society of Cuba to provide you with the best possible experience.

  • You will live and study in the vibrant Vedado neighborhood of central Havana with proximity to the university, cafes, music venues and local student hangouts.
