Marquette University Student Program on Theater

Marquette University Summer Faculty-Led Program Announcement

Drama and Performance in Cuba Today

June 27-July 17, 2012

Join Marquette University's Dr. Raquel Aguilu de Murphy, Associate Professor of Spanish, on a program to Cuba this summer.  Through site visits, excursions and lectures by notable figures in the performing arts scene, this three-week program will provide students an intensive, first-hand experience with the Cuban culture, economics, healthcare, and religion, as well as offer an immersion experience in the Spanish language.  The itinerary includes a number of excursions, including viewing live performances of the plays studied and conversations with notable playwrights and actors regarding current issues in Cuban society.
This program offers students a unique opportunity to get to know first-hand a country of many stereotypes through the dynamic lens of theater, as well as engage the Spanish language.  Students with at least the equivalent of five semesters of college Spanish are eligible.

  1. The Cuban culture is rich with a beautiful history. How much is this summer program? And technology wise, are the universities and colleges updated on online programs?
