Students in the API Cuban and Caribbean Studies Program will study at the University of Havana. Founded in 1728, the University of Havana is the oldest university in Cuba and one of the first to be founded in the Americas. Originally a religious institution, today it hosts over 15 colleges/faculties spanning the disciplines in the natural sciences, social sciences and humanities, and business.
American students are once again permitted by the U.S. government to study in this culturally rich southern neighbor. Students in Havana will have the opportunity to choose between two different semester programs: the Cuban and Carribean Studies program and the Spanish Language and Culture program. In both cases, students will study Spanish language, Cuban culture, and humanitarian studies at the prestigious University of Havana (Universidad de la Habana). API also offers a summer and January term program in Havana.
