Off-Campus Study Program & Location: Autonomous University of Social Movements (A.U.S.M.) in Marianao, Cuba and later at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library in Boston, Massachusetts.
What did you study while off-campus? I spent the spring of 2016 studying in the Havana municipality of Marianao, Cuba. My course structure was quite unique. The A.U.S.M. program is all about praxis – putting classroom education into practice. While our courses were grounded in History, Politics, Economics, and the Spanish language; our university instructors included adjunct faculty who are leaders in Cuban non-governmental organizations, representatives of the Cuban government, medical professionals, and members of the Cuban artistic community.
