EDU 590 - Exploring Culture in the Cuban Context

The purpose of this graduate course taught in Spanish is to promote the in-depth examination of Cuban culture through in-country study, living, and travel experiences. It is intended to promote the development of conceptual understandings in regard to culture, approaches for examining culture complexly, and active engagement in cultural and cross-cultural comparisons. Students will systematically explore authentic Cuban cultural practices and products and analyze underlying cultural perspectives, with emphasis on their unique social and political nature and implications of these. Students will design and develop a capstone project that integrates course concepts, Cuban culture, and the Spanish language. This is the companion course to the Spanish language course students will take in the FLEX (Facultad de Lenguas Extranjeras) program at the Universidad de la Habana.

Prerequisite: Acceptance into the SUNY Oswego Cuba Summer Study Abroad Program, which requires demonstrated Intermediate High or above Spanish language proficiency.
