Winter study abroad journalism course in Cuba

Adelphi University’s journalism program is offering a 2-week study abroad course in Cuba this January. The course is worth 3-credits and open to undergraduate students from all universities.

This unique course, "Global Perspectives: Climate Change Reporting in Cuba," introduces students to the impacts of climate change and reporting about climate change in an international context.  From January 8 to 20, 2015, the class will travel to Cuba and visit Havana as well as some more rural parts of the western Cuban coastline.

Students will be interviewing, shooting video, capturing audio and reporting for a website. They will be meeting climate change experts, local stakeholders, media professionals and government officials and will ultimately observe how climate changes are converging in one of the most misunderstood and culturally rich places on Earth.

All-inclusive cost (flights, housing, food, tuition, activities, visa fees) is $6,900. Apply by September 30, 2014. For more info, visit
