International Programs

The Cuban and Caribbean Studies Institute offers Tulane undergraduate and graduate students the exciting opportunity to spend part of summer vacation exploring the intrigue and curiosity of Cuba. Currently our programs invite undergraduate, graduate, and Public Health graduate students to Havana, and offer 3-6 Tulane credit hours. The programs are designed to bring the participants closer to the region’s politics, society, history, health system, and culture through intensive class work and stimulating explorations outside of the classroom.

Non-Tulane students are welcome to apply to our programs. Grades and credits are transferable according to each school’s policies. The programs are open only to students seeking credit hours at a university.

The Stone Center for Latin American Studies and the Cuban and Caribbean Studies Institute at Tulane University are proud to announce a two-week summer educator institute exploring the geography, culture and history of Cuba. For an educator, Cuba is rich with lessons to bring into the classroom. This program highlights the important historical and cultural connections between the United States and Cuba. Participants will explore key sites and meet local experts and artists who will provide unique insight for educators who teach such subjects as U.S./Latin American Relations, World Geography, World History, and Spanish among others. Come and visit the site of the historic Bay of Pigs, explore Milton Hershey’s sugar plantation and hear firsthand about the Cuban national literacy campaign from the teachers themselves.
