WKCTC Study Abroad Trip to Cuba

Paducah, Kentucky (August 31, 2016) Traveling to Cuba is on the horizon with this years West Kentucky Community and Technical College Study Abroad Program in May 2017. The trip, which is open to WKCTC students, faculty, staff and the community, can be booked now.

Travellers will experience Cuba with a combination of culture and history as they explore Havana to Cayo Santa Maria during the nine-day adventure.

Visiting Cubas vibrant capital of Havana to taking in the breathtaking coastline of Cayo Santa Mara to the Spanish colonial city of Sancti Spritus is just the beginning for this once in a lifetime adventure, said Pat Blaine, trip tour leader and WKCTC English professor.

Local artists, musicians, historians, naturalists and students will share their country with us and well get an insiders perspective throughout the trip. This will be an experience you cant get by reading a book about this energetic and dynamic island nation cut off from much of the western world for decades, said Blaine.

In Spring 2017, an optional introductory course will provide students with an overview of Cuba to prepare them for the trip. The course, which is open to the community and recommended for those traveling on the 2017 trip, will be offered online and can be taken for credit or audited.
