Program Description:
Be one of a select group of students to experience Cuban culture and customs firsthand, learning how and why the country has shaped—and reshaped—the regional and international landscape.

The Sarah Lawrence College in Havana program has, since its beginning, aimed to expose American students to a unique society about which much has been written, but little is widely known.

As the longest continuously running study abroad program in Havana, we offer a small and intimate classroom experience, as well as full Spanish language immersion. These experiences promise a sense of authenticity influenced by Sarah Lawrence traditions and ideals.


Each student in the Sarah Lawrence College in Havana program takes four courses for credit:

A required seminar at the Center for Demographical Studies (3 credits)
Three electives at 4 credits each in either the humanities, social sciences, and/or the arts (12 credits)
Students may be required or permitted to pursue an Advanced Spanish language course as one of their electives

All courses are taught in Spanish. Students are enrolled in classes with their Cuban peers at the University of Havana and Instituto Superior De Artes (ISA).
