LAS 3026 - car in cuba

In this new course, Cuba: A Collective Portrait (LAS 3930), UCF students will dive into today’s vibrant Cuban culture, examining it through the exploration of visual arts, literature, music, history and other themes. This course and affiliated short-term study abroad trip offer a rare opportunity and are open to UCF students across all disciplines. LAS 3930 would appeal particularly to students in history, political science, Latin American studies, Spanish, literature, education, art, engineering and music. Through this course, students will gain an awareness and appreciation of Cuban society, culture, and history through direct and unique experiences. Knowledge of Spanish is NOT a requirement.

LAS 3930 features two distinct tracks: the first with a traditional study abroad experience, and the second with a virtual study abroad experience. As a traditional study abroad participant, you will go on the Spring Break trip to Cuba, where you will engage in a rigorous and active daily program including, but not limited to, visits to museums and cultural centers, art installations, medical clinics, schools, farms, sporting facilities, and sites claiming historic and cultural significance.

For students who choose the virtual track, the study abroad experience will include collaborating with students who go on the trip on a variety of assignments shaped by the course goals and learning outcomes before, during and after Spring Break.
