SPEA is pleased to be offering a one-of-a-kind Spring Break course (V482) in
Havana, Cuba, as part of the spring semester honors section of National and
International Policy (S160) taught by Professor Dan Preston. Havana is the
capital, largest city and economic heart of Cuba. It is the location of the
Cuban Government, several cultural sites and historically significant locales,
as well as many important businesses and institutions. The city provides a
broad spectrum of learning opportunities. Furthermore, visiting Cuba is a
unique experience and especially relevant for comparative policy studies given
its proximity to the U.S. and dramatically different government structure. For
