School of Education Majors Study Abroad in Cuba

As part of the School of Education’s goal to increase global citizenship among its students, elementary education majors completed an inaugural study abroad in Cuba through a course titled international internship, where teacher candidates were asked to immerse themselves in a culture other than their own. In addition to the hours spent in a U.S.-based bilingual school, teacher candidates expanded their knowledge of cultural diversity through journal reflections, book discussions, films and travel abroad.

While in Cuba, HU elementary education students demonstrated a commitment to service-learning through the completion of a service project, which included painting an elementary school. Students made many visits to Cuban schools and enjoyed the history of the Museo de la Revolución and the Literacy Museum.




“Connecting You to HU” is our goal. Howard alumni truly define this university and reinforce the powerful legacy that is our alma mater.
