SAVANNAH — Armstrong State University will offer a new study abroad program in Havana, Cuba, July 9-29. Students will learn about the history, culture and issues affecting the communist island nation post-Fidel Castro.
The program is open to all Armstrong students, as well as University System of Georgia transient students, and offers a roster of semester credits.
“Students will be exposed to an array of cultural activities and study excursions designed to encourage direct interaction with the Cuban people,” said Armstrong associate professor of sociology Ned Rinalducci, Ph.D., director in residence for the program. “Cuba is on the verge of dramatic change and this frozen-in-time nation, just starting to open up, is a compelling place to study.”
Armstrong’s Office of International Education helps promote, coordinate and administer study abroad and exchange programs that are developed by faculty and offered by the University System of Georgia.
