During the 3 week immersion, you will have the chance to interact directly with Cuban farmers, university students, researchers, and government officials across four cities.
Each week you will participate in critical discussions mediated by a TA or instructor on readings and/or lectures in small groups. These groups will be randomized 3 times over the duration of the seminar in order to encourage team-building.
A typical day might include:
- Visiting a farm or university
- Discussions with the instructors and students
- Group meals
- Time for the students to do homework, readings or explore independently
Notable environmental conditions: Expect to be outside in very hot and humid conditions either on farms or in urban areas, daily short but heavy rains are expected.
Lots of walking and standing for much of the day
There is likely some restriction on where the students can take photographs.
You will be staying in a mixture private homes and backpacker hotels
