Cuba  (Summer 2015)

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln College of Journalism and Mass Communications students traveled to Havana Cuba for a three-week program exploring the country's media environment and culture. Ten students resided in casas particulares, or homestays, with Cuban families in Havana where host parents regularly prepared traditional Cuban cuisine for breakfast and dinner. Within the three-week program, students navigated the city of 2.2 million with the help of four young Cuban professionals. Daily interaction with Cuban citizens facilitated understanding of the culture and history as well as a greater knowledge of everyday life in Cuba.
