Study Race, Ethnicity, and Identities in Colombia.

In this program, you’ll study race and identity through the Afro-Colombian lens. The program’s curriculum, developed in consultation with Howard University, allows you to examine representations of race and ethnicity in Colombia, improve your Spanish, and live with Colombian roommates. You’ll use the Cali's rich backdrop of diversity as your springboard from which to examine the sociopolitical, economic, artistic, and historical representations of race in all of Afro-Colombia.

Highlights: 
  • Core courses taught in English
  • Pre-semester Spanish Intensive to help you adjust to your new life abroad
  • Group excursions outside of Cali to explore core concepts from different locales 
  • Traveling Seminar
  • No language prerequisite
