[…] This summer, N.C. State students have the unique opportunity to travel to [Cuba] and earn up to six credit hours.
The program is N.C. State’s first study abroad trip to Cuba and is directed jointly by Nicholas Robins, a Professor of History, and Mark Darhower, a Professor of Foreign Language and Literature.
The trip to Cuba will take place from May 17 until June 7 and emphasize the “exploration of the socio-environmental impact of the sugar, tobacco and coffee industries, as well as unique historical-political and linguistic aspects of Cuban culture,” according to the Study Abroad website.
Students can get credit for either HI 395: Environmental History of Cuba or FLS 295: Environmental History of Cuba and FLS 395: Language and Culture of Modern Cuba.
“The idea is that students can get Spanish credit and/or History credit,” Darhower said.
[…] “This is an unprecedented opportunity to see what, to most Americans, is the forbidden island, and students who are interested should sign up sooner rather than later,” Robins said.
