Arcadia Broadens Programs

Arcadia in Cuba: New Semester and Summer Programs

Arcadia University is pleased to announce that it has expanded its academic
offerings in Havana, Cuba, to include both semester and summer programs,
commencing in January 2013. Arcadia in Cuba programs will give students the
opportunity to study at the University of Havana, and to enjoy a special
connection with the University's Center for Hemispheric and U.S. Studies. 

Each program includes a core course focused on U.S. and Cuban relations
along with Cuban history, taught by faculty from the University of Havana.
This core course is designed to contextualize the social and political
dynamics of Cuba within a global framework, and to provide insight into the
relationship between Cuba and the United States.  In addition, students will
be able to study Spanish language and take courses (taught in Spanish)
alongside Cuban students in all departments of the university.

While in Cuba, Arcadia’s Resident Director will offer Arcadia students
support in all aspects of student welfare as well as offering academic
co-curricular learning opportunities that are designed to maximize the
opportunity afforded by this unique island. With Arcadia in Cuba, students
will immerse themselves in Cuba’s fascinating culture, living in the vibrant
city of Havana, with its eclectic interplay of Latin, European and American
cultural influences.
