Studying abroad in Cuba is new for UDM and most American colleges. It recently became possible when President Barak Obama eased restrictions regarding travel to Cuba.Students and those not affiliated with the university can go if they enroll in at least one credit of study.

SPA 3990 Advanced Culture (one credit) with Prof. Ann Eskridge,

CST 3140 Intercultural Communications (three credits) with Dr. Barbara Bolz and

The cost of the trip is based on a 16-participant minimum, meaning that the more people come the less you as a study abroad student will have to pay.
