Students will travel on a round-trip charter flight to Havana from Miami; at the end of the program, students will spend two days in Miami to visit Cuban immigrant neighborhoods, partake in Cuban cultural experiences, and reflect on the Miami-Cuba connection. Cultural destinations and events will be planned daily.
