It’s a historic week.
For the first time in over 80 years, a sitting US president is visiting Cuba. As US and Cuban leaders sit down to talk about how to normalize the two countries’ relations, tourists and students are already taking advantage of the relaxed restrictions to get an inside perspective into one of the most isolated countries in the world.
Obama Says Cuba Embargo Does ‘Not Serve Our Interests’
Since the normalizing of relations began in December 2014 a lot has happened. Cuba was removed from the US’s list of State Sponsors of Terrorism. The US embassy in Havana resumed operation. And travel and trade restrictions were eased.
The change in tone also opens up educational possibilities. Students are now more able than ever to visit this Caribbean island country and get a truly unique perspective into the cultural, political, socioeconomic, and environmental conditions that are present today.
With ISA’s Cuba summer program, students will have the opportunity to study at Havana’s historic Universidad de las Artes while working to perfect their Spanish language skills and learning about Cuban culture and literature.
This is a pivotal time in the two countries’ histories and you could experience it first-hand.
