This winter break program to Cuba is a special opportunity that connects the traditional FSA program to an Honors Research Seminar
Now in its 12th year, the Freshman Seminar Abroad (FSA) program offers students the opportunity to take a first-year seminar course in an international location.  Students enroll for topical tracks with about 16 students.  This Winter Break program to Cuba is a special opportunity that connects the traditional FSA program to an Honors Research Seminar.

The Cuba program theme is urban sustainability, with special emphasis on issues such as urban planning, historic preservation, economic development, and food systems.  Students will learn about these issues as part of their UGS 102 (3 credits) course and conduct research projects as part of their UGS 200H (3 credits) course.  Students that go on the program should have the equivalent of college Spanish (i.e. one year of high school Spanish, placement in SPN 102 or higher, or enrollment in SPN 101 during Fall 2014).

Applications for this program are now available.  Students can go online to the Office of Study Abroad website to complete the application.  Once students are accepted to the program, they will be enrolled in the correct courses.  Students should make sure they either have their passport or apply for their passport when they apply for the program.  Students will need a passport to apply for travel to Cuba.
