This spring, Bryn Mawr professors Enrique Sacerio-Gari of Spanish, Gary McDonogh of Growth and Structure of Cities, and Raymond Albert of the Graduate School of Social Work, are teaming up for a 360° that will immerse students in the history and culture of Cuba. As part of the course, students will have the opportunity to travel to Havana to experience today’s Cuba.

Preregistration for this 360° is now open. There’s an enrollment limit of 15 students. The deadline for applications is Wednesday, Nov. 5, at noon.

For more information, visit the 360° website.

360° is an interdisciplinary experience that engages several aspects of a topic or theme, giving students an opportunity to investigate thoroughly and thoughtfully a range of perspectives. A cohort of students takes a cluster of classes over the course of a semester, focusing on the history, economic concerns, cultural intersections, and political impact of an era, decision, event, policy, or important scientific innovation. 360° participants hone their arguments and insights through writing and research, develop strategies for teamwork that push the limits of their talents and creativity, and work with professors and scholars to promote big-picture thinking. Travel associated with the 360° program is funded by Bryn Mawr College.
