Say hello to the mamas
When the Four Mamas founded API together more than 20 years ago, they dreamed of creating high-quality, safe, life-changing study abroad programs they would feel good sending their own kids on. With dedication, hard work, and a lot of love, their dream became reality. Thousands and thousands of students have chosen API to support them on their own life-changing study abroad experiences, with the Four Mamas cheering them on every step of the way. No matter who you are or where you come from, API will support you on your journey.

Coursework will be supplemented by numerous cultural activities and excursions.

SPANISH LANGUAGE COURSE
This course may consist of 60 hours of intensive language study and 15 hours of cultural topics over a three week period for a total of five semester credits. Alternatively, students may choose to take only the 60 hours of intensive language study over the same time period for a total of four semester credits. Each language course is 4-5 semester credits.
Students will take a course on Cuban cinema.
The Universidad de la Habana operates on the contact hour system, wherein the number of credits earned depends on the time spent in class. To determine the conversion of contact hours to U.S. credits, divide the contact hours available by 15.
Students in Havana will live with other API students and, in some cases, other international students in a local residencia. An API Residencia in Havana is a renovated home run by a host family, near the University of Havana campus. Residencias have common spaces where students can work and where API holds group activities. Breakfast and dinner are also provided as part of the program fee.
